20 gallon planted tank


I'm not sure whether this qualifies as a nano or not..

20G High,
eheim ecco 2234 (rated for 60 gallons), spray-bar return, with the eheim bio balls and zeo-carb.
100w heater I can't remember the brand of...
4xt5 2 sunlight and 2 pink plant bulbs. currently on 9:30 am - 9:30 pm..which given the algae is a little much, so i'll be cutting it down to probably 2pm-10pm.
It has moonlight, however it's not been connected for a while...

I'm considering setting up a co2 system, as well

1 albino tiger barb (there were 3 originally, this is the only one that's left after 3 years)
7 neon tetras
1 cory cat
2 red wag platties, born in that tank about 2 years ago..unfortunately their parents are no longer with us.
1 kuhli loach I never really see except on special occasions.

The scape is fairly new..it had plastic plants in it for a really long time, but I finally had enough, so about a month ago I switched to real.

any comments/suggestions welcome.

I'd like to get some actual rocks in there..the pebble/rock things in there now were to hold the driftwood down, as it was still floating. I'd also like to add a bit more substrate as some of the roots are not as deep as they could/should be (and you can see the potting mix in some of them)
and yes, it needs to be topped off and scrubbed..unfortunately there is another tank on the right hand side of it, so using the mag float is not possible on that wall and my hand-held scrubber is out of commission..so I'll probably pick a new one this weekend at the LFS together with some more plants.

now on to the pictures...
