30 gallon rebuild


well the day has come and gone in witch i had to tare down my tank and take it on a jurney from Lebanon NJ to Richmond IN. any way the ride when rather smooth, other than one side of my face and body getting sunburned. but i think the tank turned out pretty well. it still has alot of empty space that i plan to fill in with but i think it looks better than it did.

Before:


After:

Wow that Blyxa is amazing

What's that plant in the front left? Creeping Jenny?

That mystery plant is Eichhornia diversifolia

thanks. i'm really happy because my last two RCS decided to breed so i have a good colony started. still feel like i need some type of center piece fish in there but am uncertain. would like something small and something that wont eat my shrimp so suggestions welcome. also what would you guys think would be a good plant to add a bit more red in there?
