First all planted tank


This is my first all planted tank, 20g long, finally added driftwood and moss that's been soaking for about a month. Let me know how I did, thanks!

Joe

Thanks, only thing I might add are some small foreground plants between driftwood where there is bare spots and once I do a big WC before stocking the heater will be getting pushed down lower to hide it a bit

More plants is always good. I think you're going in the right direction. I'm a stickler about trying to hide equipment (filters, heaters, etc), but that's just me...

Tank looks really good. Just a little bit of advice. I am running that same light on a 20 Long. When I had it sitting on the tank like you have now it was an algae factory. I raised it about 15" above the substate and dose Excel. If I don't dose Excel algae will work its way in.
