Sam's 20 Long Rimless Tranquility

I figured that I might as well start one of these journals, as much as I do to my main tank on a constant basis. I completely redid my tank from the substrate up on 2/3/2012, transplanting everything from my old setup. A well cleaned garbage can served as a temporary fish and plant home. I redid this thing for a couple reasons. Firstly, the gigantic rock i had in there was taking up too much room, i never saw any of my amanos because they always hung out behind it, and the damned thing was just a big algae magnet. Plus, the nice front to back slope I originally had went away after multiple replantings (I can never seem to stay satisfied). So here's the old setup:
