Thanks! As for plans, I'm not to sure at the moment. I would like to get the plants going strong and finish my cycle to add some fish in.... but as for what I plan on stocking in here.... I haven't got a clue yet.

So can you share the secret to your success/w us ?
Light:
Ferts:
IMO that is great plant growth.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Ok guys.

Light is a 36" AquaticLife Dual T5HO with a 10000k and a 6700k bulb on for 7 hours a day.
Ferts: tsp KN03, 1/16 tsp KH2P04, 1/16 tsp K2SO4, and 1/16 tsp Plantex CSM+B Once a week on Moday and I do a 50% WC every Thrus.

As for the fauna in this tank it might be a tad overstocked but everyone seems happy.
3 Neon Dwarf Rainbows
2 Celebes Rainbows
2 Madagascar Rainbows
5 Cherry Barbs
2 Dwarf Gouramis
3 Longfin GBR
1 EBR
4 Otos
3 Sterbai Cory Cats
and maybe 15 ish Ghost shrimp (with 2 preggo ones).

I did have a slight algae problem on the glass when I first started and was using liquid ferts.... since switching to dry ferts and some cleaning the algae is under control.

Well alittle over 2 months has passed. The tank has changed a quite a bit. I haven't been doing much to it since a rescape except water changes and small doses of ferts.

Here it is:
