and my tank is starting to show some progress.

Flora:
amazon sword
rotala indica
bacopa carolinia
some sort of ludwigia
java moss
Blyxa japonica(thank you Sara)
glosso
and a few others

Fauna:
1 golden gourami
5 pristella tetras(i think)
2 neon zebra danios(red)
1 tiger barb
1 SAE
2 amano shrimp
2 oto cats
and a tone of snails

equipment:
2 2l diy co2
satelite 65 watt compact flourecent
and a power filter that came with the tank


here is the tank as of today
please excuse the bad pictures
[
I need suggestions on anything, what could help, what I am doing wrong, and any help with taking pictures
any comments are appreciated.

you need to upload your photos to a service like photobucket or tinypic, you can't link them from email attachments

Yeah! You are getting a journal setup! How are the plants fairing? Hopefully the blyxa is doing well.

Good job on uploading the pictures. Awesome tank! I really love the stem plant on the right and left of the tank. I wish I could identify them. That Amano is adorable. Good picture.

If you don't have one already, get a check valve on the diy co2. I made the mistake of doing this and had tank water on my floor from the back suction. They are like $2 at Walmart.

Keep up the good work.
