48 Gallon / 182L Planted

So I've had my 48 Gal up and running for a month now specs as follows:

Eheim 2217
External Hydor 300w heater
Pressurised CO2 with external Sera Flore 500 Reactor and PH Controller
2 x 96w 10,000k Power Compacts and 1 x 55w 6500k Power compact
Ph 6.7-6.8, Kh 4

Hemianthus Callitrichoides
Hemianthus Micranthemoides
Cardamine Lyrata
Ambulia Sessiliflora
Cabomba Coroliniana
Green Rotala
2 x Crypts
Java Moss
and Pogostemon Helferi (currently being delivered)

2 x dwarf gourami (1 red and 1 blue)
10 x Red cherry shrimp

Soon to come:
20-25 Cardinal tetras
10 Celestial Pearl Danios (if i can ever find someone who stocks them)

I've put one crappy pic up of when I first set it up, interesting to see how much growth there has been, especially with the HC in just one month.

I figure 2-3 more months and it will be all grown out and lush

Any questions let me know.

Excellent looking setup and very nice grow in progress. I like the looks of the aquascape also.

Time for an update.

Things are going well everything growing like crazy.

-Removed Wisteria as it was growing out of control and replaced it with Mayaca Fluviatilis 2 weeks ago.
-Added Hydor 900 nano pump as circulation was lacking in some areas
-Started adding dry Ferts, CYA LATER SEACHEM! So much cheaper.

Currently have 2 dwarf Gouramis and 19 Cardinals, 10 Red cherry shrimp, further suggestions on additions would be appreciated

Enjoy the pics, just trimmed all the plants 4 hours ago.
