Luizin A close up on the amazon sword leaf!

Luizin Thanks a lot guys! I hope it keeps going like this! The plant in the foreground to the right is actually Glossostigma and it grows upward sometimes? As for the light I've been looking for something nicer but I've had no luck, if you know of anything better by all means let me for the fish I'm not sure ingot them at my LFS and they said they would survive without a heater...also have 3 ghost shrimp and 2 are pregnant. You can see the eggs in the stomachs!

Kyguylal What fish are in there?

Monster Fish You might have too much light if the clamp lamp is resting directly on top of your tank. Also, that amazon sword in the back will get too big for your tank.
