After working my tank over a little the last few days, I am pretty darn pleased with how it looks and where it's headed...

I now have an Eheim classic 2213. Talk about the Cadillac of filters, wow.

A friend of mine just started his first planted tank and gave me half a bag of Eco-Complete substrate (made my CaribSea) he had left over. So I scooped up the sand on the right side of my tank and re-planted the glosso-starts in that instead. This tank DID start out as a dirt tank capped with sand, but the layer of dirt on the right side was really thin. That might help account for why my HC didn't really spread farther. Just shootin in the dark.
