Wow! I really like that! Would definitely look nice! There wouldn't happen to be any blue-ish low light plants would there? The tank is for my gf and she doesn't really like red, but blue is her favorite hence the reason why I'm getting Blue Velvets and several other blue fish for the tank. The RCS and cory cats are just to occupy the tank for now.

I haven't taken the time to update this thread. I've taken too many photos and already posted them up elsewhere, so here's a link to my 5gal thread on Houstonfishbox.com. I recently updated with some pics. This tank has gone a long way since September and only had algae problems for the first few weeks. I'm gonna step up the fert dosing to get some better color out of the plants, but for now I'm only using Excel and Flourish.

So far I'm quite pleased by how it turned out. Still working on getting the hydrocotyle japan to carpet which will take a while. DHG keeps getting uprooted by the snails, o-cats, and shrimp. HC is growing great too! Moss is finally growing past the melting phase from the excel and is tolerating it well now.
