5g tank
DIY CO2:3 Gal orange juice bottle
Limestone for diffusion method
PMDD fert
CFL light 10W 6700k

Tell me what you think!

ID-ing the plant would be a good info for me. Got most of the plant from a club swap session, I am clueless!

Nice natural looking nano tank. Maybe a closed background? Can you take a closeup from the plant you want to ID?

hmmmm... :idea: maybe you can take a photo from a closer distance, it is very hard to see any difference on the photo you've already posted. Also this link http://www.tropica.com/plant_print.asp will help you to indentify the most recognizable ones

Tank looks great, nice sense of scale for being so small. Knetter is right about the plants being hard to ID without better pics (at least for me ). I think I see a stem of anacharis and maybe some java fern in the front left?

I would suggest taking out the chinese and siamese algae eaters. Both get WAY too big for the tank. The other fish do get to be a decent size too, but will probably be ok.

As for the plants, they all look good. It's hard for me to see the tank cause the pic looks so small tho.

How about return them to the store now to avoid making them suffer in such a small container.
