I really like what you did with this. I have the same tank that I'm currently working on setting up.

Picture Update [1.6.13]

I need help identifying the plants reveaeled in the photos below.

I have already identified the following plants:

Flame Moss
Frogbit
Dwarf Sag
Annibus

The plants I need help identifying are in the back left hand side of the tank. The second picture below is a close up of these plants.

They came in a bulb/seed pack I bought from Petco. One of the plant looks like a sword with long narrow leaves. The other is more a stem type growing long stems across the top of the aquarium and one has flowered.

Hi tylergvolk,

Aponogeton species; most likely based upon the leaf shape and flower spike Aponogeton ulvaceous.

Hi tylergvolk,

They look the same to me, both Aponogeton.

Nice tank! I always liked how frogbit floats around ... they look so cute! :P

I would suggest against tossing in a few RCS in there. Ghosties are territorial and will attack them. I would also keep an eye on your ghosties in case one or two turn out to be macrobrachium shrimp which will nip at Zippy's fins

Macrobrachium shrimp are often mistaken for ghosties at the LFS when they're young. They can grow up to 4 inches!
