Default Planted 3g Build - Amano Inspired

I threw this together last week. Freshwater 3g planted pico. Just wanted to share I've got a pygmy gourami, 4 neon tetras, and 1 small Nannostomus pencilfish. I HAD a beautiful actinic blue and red male double tail betta until he went carpet surfing sometime last night through a hairline opening on the top But all the other fish are absolutely thriving and the plants are beginning to sprawl out. I'm pretty proud of it Oh, there's also a 20g long mostly artificial plants and gravel, one live plant. Inside I've got a golden panchax killi, an orange platy, and an angel. The panchax was gonna stay in my pico but he harassed my neons way too much. Peaceful my a$$. The platy was too active for it and was gonna tear it up. What's left to do: I need to find some dwarf hairgrass at one of my lfs to complete the bed of my amano inspiration. Also pick up one or two pea puffers from my lfs. These puffers are feeding on flake (I watched them) and they are with other small fish like the ones in my pico and she said these ones are out of their fin nipping stage so fingers crossed.

My orange platy that was moved to the 20g. It was too active for my pico and was gonna tear everything up and it was bothering the other fauna.
