First things first Ty all so much for the kind words and advice I'm learning south by lurking around here haha

Ok so one thing I want to get out of the way is if there is anyway this could get moved to the Tank Journals section it's kind of is one and I feel like I started it in the wrong place

Ok so the update, since last time I have upgraded my lighting to 3 cfl's all running 24w cool white globes, I have two on the back and one on a front corner.

Now I have a question, with the lights like that I seem to have high/low to low/medium par, should I be thinking about DIY Co2 or will daily excel be enough? I can't help bit feel the excel isn't doing anything.
I have also done away with the plane(for now) and added a couple bunches of what was labeled foxtail but I'm 99% sure it's Cabomba and the Goldie's love it lmao good thing it's cheap at only $6 a bunch hahaha

I have also added a school of 6 peppered Cory cats and glad I did these guys are amazing to watch scooting around the rocks and trying to school with the Goldie's haha and put a few more handfuls of sand in to fill out the front more

The swords are doing good all of them have 3-4 new leaves it seems and one of the j.fern has a new leaf coming up

So that's it for now, I'm going to be working on a new scape outside of the tank with wood and stone as the Goldie's will be going to a new home on the 21st and I'm going to be getting 6 congo tetra so I have some time to get it just how I want it
And now some misc pics
