Question my 30gal craigslist build ...thoughts?

1 sunset hygro split up on left and right side
rotala indica spread out all over
java moss and a couple anubia's on the driftwoods
dwarf tears and microsword patches here and there
(dwarf tears not doing so good)

I dont have a pressurized co2.. i just use the API co2 liquid booster.

9 cardinal tetras
3 glowlight rasboras (1 jumped.. so down to 2)
5 cherry shrimp (1 went missing.. down to 4)
2 amano shrimp
2 baby BN pleco's

had a bunch of nerites, but after my tank started to get saturated with eggs i promptly returned them.

Thoughts on tank so far?

hopefully it grows out nicely.. i re arranged some of the rotalas earlier and they have some massive new roots.

this was just a quick first time build for me (was mainly for my 3 and 1 year old girls who love lookin at the shrimp and fishies!)

I went and found some cool driftwood over the weekend out in the rivers and the beach, so maybe later ill experiment with some of those

Looks great to me, love the 30gal dimensions might use it to replace my 26
