Redoing my 10g tank

Hey everyone,

I had my old set up (last pic) thriving for the last couple of years and decided it's time to change it up a bit. So, here is my new set up planted on 7/21/2012

Substrate- FLourite, sand, and some left over gravel

Lighting - 20" Odyssea 36W 6700K (1 bulb) & 1 actinic

CO2- Paintball canisters and a GLA regulator w/ bubble counter and drop checker (2bps)

Filtration - 2 x HOB 20 & 30 Aquaclear filters

Water - Tap w/ prime

Plants - HC, MM, Ludwigia repens, Anubias Petite,Hygro corymbosa
angustifolia

Ferts - Excell, Flourish and root tabs

Fish - One adopted Molly who thinks HE's a dog, rasporas, cardinal and green tetras

Inverterbrates - RCS and Amanos

Water parameters - PH 7.2, NO3 40, NH3 0,

I think my nitrates are a bit high because I used some of my left over gravel out of the old tank. I left the old gravel in and just added to it.
I'm doing 25% water changes twice a week which should bring the NO3 down.
Now to kick back and watch it grow. I'll be posting more pics down the line.

Couple of new additions

Ludwigia red
Blue mystery snail
Anubias Barteri

Some gsa beginning to grow on the rocks. Kinda looks cool!
I'll be removing the anubias from this tank and placing it in to my 12g long tank as soon as I get that one going.

Here's how the ten looks now. I have a ton of hyro polysperma growing in this tank. Definitely my favorite plant at the moment.
