Here is my 29 Gallon that I just started a journal on. I just ordered 10 yellow shrimp and am in the process of collecting what I need to properly take care of them. Forgive my inability to use my DSLR correctly. I need to figure out why the top gets overexposed and the bottom is dark. It looks much more "balanced" as far as light goes and lush in person.

Stock: 1 Lg. Kissing fish. Name is Fred. I have had this guy for approx. 7 years since a friend of my wife moved away. I was going to get rid of him when I revamped this tank but don't have the heart to. He has one eye, the other he lost the lens a very long time ago to...well I have no idea what) If he really starts to rip things up (he does a little at night mostly) then I may have to let him go.
2 Baby Marbled Angels, 3 Black Mollies, 3 Gold Mollies, 1 Zebra Danio (mistake by LFS) 5 Brilliant Rasbora and a couple of Olive Nerite snails.
I dose 1 cap-full of Flourish Excel every other day, 20 percent water change once a week. I keep the tank at 78 degrees. I am not going to vacuum the gravel unless absolutely necessary.
On to the pictures...
And with the LED's on:
