Looks alot bigger than a 85 gallon to me for some reason.

Good job

Update:
2.12.11

Sold my clown loaches and tiger barbs and I now have 20 Harlequin Rasboras
You can barely see them in this pic as they're still pretty small. About 0.5-0.7" lol
The school is smaller than I imagined so I might up it to 30.
Suggestions?

Update:
2.26.11
Two days away from my birthday! XD

Added 5 smaller amanos, I hope that my rainbow sharks leave them alone . Funny story about the Amanos, the sales clerk at The Wet Spot counted the 5 as only 1 so I almost got 5 amanos for 1.95$! lol I say almost because my dad made me go back and tell the truth :P
As you can see, I've completely hacked back the left side.I pulled up all the plants and replanted them more loosely apart. I then plunged in 30 root tabs on the left side alone
Here are the two bunches:

Here are the two bunches that I didn't replant

I just read your journal. I hope that you had a very good birthday. Happy Belated Wishes! Your tank is very pretty. That is some amazing growth in such a short period of time.

I did a major trim of the right side of the tank because the stems of the P. Erectus and L. Repens weren't looking so good.
So thats that...
Before:

After:

PS. The osmocote root tabs are really starting to its effect on the plants.. especially the Amazon.. I get about a leaf that grows to the surface every 4-5 days....
Also have some Staurogyne Repens coming in on Monday or Tuesday in which I will be replacing my HC carpet with it...
