Little update...

Tank is coming along great. Had to already trim the Cabomba back, but all I did was pull it out and cut some off the bottom and replant. Very easy

I was also looking into the tank the other night and there was a baby RCS swimming around the tank from when I put the driftwood in. Apparently he decided to hitch a ride to a new home. I was kind of surprised to see him roaming around in a tank that is cycling with 4ppm Ammo and 5+ppm of Nitrites.

I pulled the little guy out and put him in my 60G angelfish tank. My angels decided to make a snack out of him

I also put a fan on my tank as well to help cool it off a bit. The tank was staying around 85˚ due to the room temperature. Now with the fan grazing over the water, brought it down to 72˚! I didn't expect a fan to work that well!

Sitting here watching my tank and I see ANOTHER baby RCS hanging out. Time to pull him out
