30L 1st Tank

This is the first tank I have ever done I've had a lot of inspiration from y'alls tanks. I want a pretty heavily planted tank but I'm trying to start small until I learn a little.

Nice start. I love driftwood and natural looking substrate. What kind of plants do you have.

Low tech, Sand substrate.
Eheim 2211, w/Purigen and Aqueon Quietflow 10.
Finnex Stingray LED, 20" above substrate
Anubias, Narrow leaf Hygro, Christmas moss.
6 Kubotai Rasboras, 2 amano's and 11 Blue Neocardia shrimp.

It's Water Sprite, Amazon Sword, Rotala Indica, and Spritalis Crypt. There is some Java Moss in there as well but I didn't attach it right. There have been more changes since I took out the Indica, it melted just as soon as I put it in there.

I'm going to add more recent pics tomorrow but I've really enjoyed the tank thus far. Trial and error is a common theme here, I guess I have a lot more failures to look forward to.

I removed Indica and planted Cabomba, Ludwigia Repens, Varigated Bacopa, and small Anubius Nana tied to small piece of driftwood. Cabomba grows like crazy but Ludwigia has a weird curl in it. If anyone has any tips on why all the stems have the same weird curl it would be a great help. Sorry for any spelling mistakes.
