Great looking tank. You said you tried many types of plants, but what you have now seems to be thriving. Do you Have a list of what's in there now? Are you using the stock plastic lid with the glass strip ?

Using a real glass top, but got rid of the plastic strip you mentioned (always looked dirty)

I did keep just the shell of the light that came with the standard top

I have the same tank, a 24" Finnex will fit under the plastic hood if you rip the old light out, and 30" will fit with some DIY work:


There is also a nice thick glass top for this tank, I got one and love it. You can put a 30" Finenx right on top:


I did both, trimmed the 30", used the plastic light shell on top of the glass top:

Don't really have a complete list of what is in there, lots of crypt, anubias, mosses, h.japan, ludwigia, Hygrophilia corymbosa 'angustifolia' and Hygrophilia corymbosa 'Siamensis', who knows what else!
