Cross Creek-First planted tank...

First planted tank!

Well, over the last couple of weeks I've been working on setting up my first true planted tanks. I've had Plants in tanks before but this will be my first truly planted one. Went very natural with it as I used topsoil from Lowe's under cap layer of sand, rock and driftwood from local creeks and lakes, with two lage pieces of malaysian dw as centerpieces.

Its a 55 gal with a Tetra Whisper 30 - 60 HOB filter and heater.

Lighting is the supplied single bulb hood/light combo running a 48" T5 6,500k

Currently stocked as follows:

5 - 6 anubias Nana
A clump of horn wort
1 java fern
1 unknown (possibly a spiky leafed variety of Java fern, I'll try to get a good pic)
More to be added as I see fit

7 jet black mollies
5 white mollies
1 ghost shrimp
More still to come

I'm open to any suggestions/criticisms you may offer!
