36gal Tiger Barb Tank

This is the start of my 36 bowfront. I'd like to update every once in awhile to see the progress, and also get some feedback from the pro's! This is a simple tank. I wanted natural, some cover for my barbs, but nothing overboard. I'm happy with it so far, and my barbs are thriving in their new home!

Has a Finnex Fugeray that is 19" over the substrate
150w PRO heater
Aquaclear 50 filter
2" of eco complete topped with my old plain gravel. I have flourish root tabs, then dose comprehensive and Excel

Stock:
- 7 green tiger barbs

Plants:
- Anubias (barteri?)
- 2x Amazon Sword
- 3x Ludwigia Repens
- 2x Bacopa Monnieri
- 2x Java Fern
- Dwarf Lilly or Tiger Lotus
- Banana Plant

then decor is just 2 pieces of Mopani wood and some petrified wood.

The tank as of today. Added a second filter, AC 20. Increased fertiliser, added Iron, Potassium, and Phosphate. Some plants died, some are new so don't know if those will die, and in the process of looking for more low light plants that would look good.

They are really pretty huh. I like how they are dark, but have bright blueish hues with orange fins. Monsters, and steal snails algae wafers lol, but fun to have for sure : )

Update. It's a total mess, but most plants are living now. Right now I'm just waiting for everything to settle well then I'll hopefully make it a little more aesthetically pleasing.
