Your going in the right direction! I really like what you've done with it since you started! I usually dont like fake ornaments in planted tanks but you've somehow managed to make yours fit in rather well! Looking good!

That is a lot of change for four months! How many different species of plants do you have? What are they? Is this your first planted tank? I just started and want to learn.

I just moved it today more towards the back as you can see on the last picture so i had more room in the front. The plants still looks wild thrown in i think, but i am not sure yet how to arrange them different to get more balance into the picture.

And thank for the compliment, i am really trying hard, don't have much money available for more or bigger plants, so i am trying to do the best i can with that little what i have.

Today i got some plants from a RAOK i won and they helped out a lot! Since i have a low light tank i never used any fertilizer, co2 and so on... Still debating if i should use some Flourish Excel to help the plants with more nutrients? Or if Root-Tabs would be the better choice?
