Ok took some updated tank photos. It's a bit less clean than it was at one point but I wanted to see how a few different plants would grow so there's a bit too many plant species in there really (I tend to like a fairly minimalistic plant selection) however dealing with the val had been a pain and I gave it a big haircut. I started getting BGA problems from lack of flow I think, the surface was getting clogged with the super long valisneria leaves.
I have no idea how the one sprig of cabomba will do, it came with some shrimp I got for my nano tank and I wasn't going to put it there. Way to nice looking to just throw away though so in it goes.
The new guys
I clearly like black and silver in fish, hah
