Looks nice! Just so you know, those Anubias (the ones with larger leaves, and maybe the little green one in the front) will die if their rhozome is buried. Again, looks good!

The rhizome is the larger, fat part of the plant, that all the leaves come out of. Anubias generally like to be attatched to driftwood or rockwork, but will do fine if you just leave the roots in the substrate.

Anything I need to know about the specific plants I have? Second, I am thinking about stocking with a couple FW puffers. Any advice? I am also adding my Co2 tomorrow.
