My First Planted Tank (40B)

I started my tank the week before Christmas, getting back into the hobby after quite a few years. I picked up a 40 breeder and stand from Petco.

I'm on a tight budget so I'll be adding more plants in time. My lace java wasn't looking too well but I'm getting some new leaves now. The others seem to being doing ok. I'm hooked on the hobby and this forum so please feel free to give me any suggestions or advice. Thanks!
