Tank and Lighting

Primo CO2 System:

Filling up:

After a few weeks of cycling:

Heater will be gone within the next week...Water temp stays around 77F.
I did have some Malaysian driftwood in there, but it took away from the plants, so I took it out. Waiting to figure out more of an Aquascape when I get some more Plants in tomorrow. I def want this to be an all Plants Fish tank as I cannot find any good Driftwood for sale in my area(I just dont want to ship wood :P) I just realize the plastic on the Lights is still on there , heh gotta take it off... And I am going to blackout the back, just showing whats been done so far....Comment/Suggestions always welcome!
