Ikebana Inspired Tank -20 long-

Hey Everyone,

This is my first attempt at a planted tank and it's proving to be very fun! I got this Blue Jack Dempsey when he was 1/2 inch long. Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for checking this out, cheers!

I most recently changed this tank to reflect the Ikebana style of arranging plants. Thanks for checking this out!
