10g Highly Planted Tank (hopefully)
Size: 10 gallon
Lighting: 2 CFL's totaling at 26 watts, about 2 inches above the tank.
Filtration: A cheap HOB filter
CO2: DIY CO2 system, using a Hagen Elite Mini Filter as the diffuser.
Substrate: Flourite only. Do I really need soil under it?
Dosing: Flourish every five days, and Flourish Excel daily to control a recent brown algae issue. I will probably cut back on it soon though.
Anubias Nana - Tied to a rock
Jave Fern - Tied to a Lava Rock
Wisteria - Really small sprout
And the plant next to the Amazon Swords I do not know the name of.. An ID would be great appreciated :]

Most of the plants in the tank were just planted today, July 26, 2012.
Full Tank Shot
Side Tank Shot - Messy hornwort before I cleaned it up
The water looks a little dirty and yellow because I took these photos not long after planting. It's been a few days now though and it looks good.
Tell me what you think, any help is good.
Prepare for a lot of trimming cause hornwort and watersprite are really fast growers!
Are those CFLs like 6200-6700k range? I think that 1 of them would suffice for a 10 gallon tank, 2 will just cause algae.
No keep both lights I have the same setup in my tank and I have no algae problems. Tanks looks good. any plans on adding a foreground plant?
I added some flaming moss from my other tank. Tied this stuff to a lava rock though where as in my other tank it is on a piece of Malaysian driftwood.
The Telantera Cardinalis is taking off since I added the other plants. Right now the tops of the leaves aren't very pink, but the bottoms are.
