Default Leros - my first tank - 90g

This is my first experience with a proper planted aquarium setup.

A few specs:
Tank: 60"x18"x19" (~90g if you generously round up)
Lighting: 60" 2 x 80w T5 in a DIY hood
Filtration: 29g sump w/ Mag 9.5 pump
CO2: Choice system from CO2 aquatics w/ DIY 20" Cerges reactor

August 2012: Getting the hardscape together. I really like the driftwood on the right


September 2012: Dry start with HC. I ended up removing some of the HC in the middle where I went further back into the tank.


I got distracted with a few other projects and didn't finish my sump until the start of 2013.

January 2013: Finally filling the tank:


I planted mid-January, but didn't take any photos.

February 2013: A few weeks after planting. I didn't like how two-dimensional the HC carpet made the front of my tank, so I planted some dwarf sagittaria in some of the gaps.


There are a few more mostly redundant photos in this album: http://imgur.com/a/yVNQB

I wish I had better quality photos. These were all taken with my phone.

Looks great. Try taking the pictures will all other lights off in the room other than the tank and see if they come out better
