Well here are pictures of my tank. It is going pretty well so far, a bit of algae is showing up but so far its not too bad.
I didn't do a whole lot with the scape and kind of have the plants mixed around.
I've got one half of the substrate a mix of flourite black sand and regular sand, and the other half is turface.
Using a Rena XP3 filter, pressurized CO2, and Catalina 4x54 T5HO lighting.
Right now I'm only running 2x54 of the lights (not sure if I have the 5600+10k or the 6700+10k set running) for 7 hours a day, CO2 on two hours early and off 2 hours early.
The 2 of the 3 red crypts in the left front have only been planted for 2 days so they are still adapting. So far everything is looking pretty good. Most of it is growing pretty good too, except the flame, christmas, and java mosses, they don't look bad but they aren't really growing either.
For fish I have 3 otos, 6 serpae tetras, 6 danios (5 zebra, one blue), 5 amano shrimp, and 5 ghost shrimp. I've also got 9 dwarf neon rainbows, 4 peppered corys, and 2 amano shrimp in another tank that are slowly being moved over to this tank.
