Update. i had to take out some of the branches on the side due to them rotting but its a learning experience. i put in some anubias nana and petite in there and i really like how it looks. just need to get some java fern from my friend and then find a carpet plant untill i get my new light!




I also just got myself a Co2 unit but not sure if ill use it on this tank yet or not

Forgot to tell you, it may be too late. There were two very small grassy plant shoots in the mix, they may have been E. tenellus, Val nana, or C. wendtii shoots. If you see them plant them out in the open until they grow alittle larger and can be ID'ed.

It's a nice start. You might want to clean the glass/ substrate on the lower right to make your tank look cleaner, which would certainly give a better appearance.

i added the Ricca tile to carpet the center and the needle leaf java behind the driftwood
sunset hygro mixed with the other hygros and also water wysteria.

Your angels are beautiful! I like the needle leaf java behind the wood, it looks really good there.
