Would you mind sharing with us your plant list, what you have for Co2, and which eheim you have?

I like the driftwood layout you have going on, but the one rock on the right is distracting, I would suggest removing it.

So the eheim is only the 2213 as i bought it before the tank upgrade. However it seems to be keeping up so far. Also there is no co2 just some excel a few days a week. Also my light strip has two 96w lights in it but i'm only using one because i don't have compressed co2 going.

As far as the plant list goes lets see if i can get this right as i don't really have a list.

Cryptocoryne x willisii(on the right)
Anubias hastifolia (far back right)
Anubias nana , yellow (on the log in the front)
Bacopa monnieri (along the back)
Cryptocoryne Balansae(on the left)
Edit: Also some kind of val in the front, i forgot what kind
there is also a tiny bit of tiwan moss in there left over from another tank i'm trying to grow out again.

If anyone thinks a plant is wrong say so because it probably is hah.

Ditto on the driftwood! But leave the rock alone... well not "alone" maybe add a couple more. Nice tank!

Hey found my old thread so i can update it.
Here are some new photos of the tank that I took tonight. Only have the one ram right now. There are currently 6 neons and 7 rummy nose at the moment i think. I'm trying to decide what to add next, suggestions anyone?
