I have no idea about the plants' names, to be honest.

i used to have a bunch more that i bought from a lfs, but ALL of them melted/died due to lack of skill on my part. so what's left are the 'easy' plants i guess.. the tank has 2 8w cfl. no co2. no ferts (or very little fert dosing - i have a bottle of liquid fert that i squirt in there maybe once a month). minimum care. i don't even do weekly WC anymore.

thanks for checking out my tank, FORREST3320.

Here's a photo I took from the top,back.

My fish are afraid of my shadow whenever I go over to them, they'd hide
behind the bushes.

I really like the rocks with the sand. what kind of rocks are those? when the plants in the middle grow taller, your fish will probably feel a little more comfortable around you with the extra places to hide. I've had that issue with a shoal of carinal tetras. takes time but they should adjust.

I like the rocks Very nice tank.

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.

Thanks Fat Guy. I have no idea what kind of rocks these are as well. I found them at my hometown's waterfall area.

Do you think it will look better if the plants at the middle grow taller? I was only planning to have them half-tank high. At the moment I am still trimming them real low and replanting that space - it is not fully planted yet.

Thanks Rony11, and cheers for the plant ID. it is a bit messy at our lfs, all plants, and fish don't even have any name labels.

Thanks thefisherman. No mixed substrate. It is just Amazonia ADA Substrate. That's all. The tank has undergone several rescapes (it's been about 1 year old now).

Thanks all for checking out my tank!

Just took a new photo of the tank and cropped it a bit.
