Oh very cool! LEDs built in, in that case, Plant Keeper, I'd love to see a shot of your tank with the main lights off and the LEDs on!

InStevens - this is only true if you are injecting CO2 into your tank, if you are not, then the bubbles are actually very helpful in my experience

What is the piece of equipment in the center of the tank on the back wall? It looks like an airstone but it also looks like it has a power cord? I've never seen anything like it, and as someone that has bubble walls or air stones in all of my tanks, I'm very curious about it!
thanks yup i have been keeping fish for 8 yrs and yes first planted tank.
And it called a Marineland LED Bubble Wands

Tank is looking really nice, I would be curious too see what the LED wand looks like with the lights off, I have always wondered when I saw them at the store.

Plants are looking very greed.

Wow, you have a 55g in the works too? Cool. You will have to practice up on your close up camera skills so we can see some closer pics

So I guess the angelfish are heading for the 55g too once it is done?

And then will you add more schooling fish to this tank?

I'm really excited to watch it all grow in
