I think it looks great, but the anacharis and hornwort need to be trimmed a bit, to keep it more manacured looking. I can't wait to see it once it's filled in a bit.

looks nice. but how come the plants are kind of yellowish. is that because of the camera? o yea. this is my personal opinion, i don't really like backgrounds. They make a mini ecosystem look kind of unauthentic. the black backgrounds are okay tho. just my opinion.

There is only a few fish right now (4 cory, 4 oto, 6 rummynose) the tank have been started only 6 weeks ago, so I prefer to add the new fishes slowly. I'm considering to change the background, you think black will be better?

Pretty much any dark color will look nice as a background. I however prefer either black or a dark blue. Green to me, doesn't make as nice of a contrast with the plants as other colors.

i agree. contrast is what makes planted aquariums nice. for example... in a home colors are like brown, black, silver, etc, and when you have a planted tank, you get a big chunk of green. thats eye candy. 8) today i was looking at my fish tank for 30 minutes while lying on bed and fell a sleep. my tank is right in front of my bed, so i can lie there and watch. pretty neat. i don't have a background tho.
