29 gal over last 3 months

Day of set up:

This past weekend:

Since the initial setup I added a CO2 system on a timer, had a crop of algae spring up which has gotten under control for the most part, started dosing Nitrogen and Potassium along with my other ferts, and added 4 Corydoras with some more fish to come shortly. The Java fern is a bit spotty but it's slowly coming around. The new growth looks great now that I'm adding the CO2 and macro nutrients.

I owe all of this to the good folks at this forum. I read TPT for a few months before even purchasing anything and had no prior knowledge/experience on fish keeping. Thank you all!!

Nice. Amazing what a little prior research can do.
