Looks pretty good! Is that a 10 gallon tank?

Out of curiosity what are some of your specs on equipment?

Nice... Looks like a 10 gallon to me?

I use the same substrate in my 10 gal. Love that stuff so far and has a great look.

No injection.

Not sure what fertilizer I am going to use. Something easy. I think most of my plantslike something with iron. I have to avoid anything with copper. Sometime today I am going to post a feetilizer topic.

Filter is for up to 20g so what size is this tank?

Dry ferts are cheaper in the long run. Here is a good topic on plants. I use Select Aquatic all in 1 dry fert. Plus I put Seachem's phosphate remover in my filters. In tank with plants with color I add iron sulfate with selects'. The phosphate remover helps keep BBA under control

Thanks. That is a good place to begin my research

The filter is adjustable for 5-20g. I have it on half power right now.
