planted 7 gal bowfront tank (56k warning)

I did a complete tank breakdown last weekend and changed my tank to 100% flourite. it was actually pretty easy, I just washed about 1/3 of the 20lbs flourite bag at a time, so the water was semi clear where I could see through the water. the tank did cloud up but it wasnt' that bad and it cleared in about 2-3 hours.

tank specs:
3.7 wpg (I retrofited the original hood w/ a 2 x 13w pc kit)
hagen co2 system (yeah, I know I should have taken it out before taking the pics)
penguin mini filter (original one w/o the bio wheel)

8 neon tetras
3 blue tetras (I think these are also called jellybean tetras)
1 albino cory (I had 3 total but the other 2 died, haven't replaced them yet)

anubias nana's
anubias nana petite
amazon swords
green cabomba
various cryps (dunno exactly which variety, they weren't labeled at the store)

I'm happy with how the left side looks with the vals and amazon sword jungle, and the anubias nana's which I got to grow on a plastic arched log, cant' really tell though b/c the pics are kinda crappy. (I need to get a better digital camera) the right side needs some work, wasn't really sure what to plant there w/o the plant leaves interfering w/ the hagen ladder. and ideally I wanted to try and grow a glosso lawn in the front, but I haven't seen any lfs here in hawaii carry it. any suggestions would be welcome, thanks for checking out my tank.

No images.
