12g planted tank/new

Hey all.

This is my first time doing a planted tank and thought I share what I currently have setup.

I'll start off with what I currently have in my tank. Tank is about 2 weeks in. The plant names can be confusing. I usually forget what they are called. I've done some research to identify them but correct me if I'm wrong.

12.7g tank (8x24x16)
Cryptocoryne
Amazon sword
Java moss
Marimo moss ball
Glossostigma elatinoides
Cyperus helfgri
X5 neon tetras
X5 zebra danios

Not sure how to post pictures. I'm going to have to figure this out (using my phone)

If you are using a phone, I would reccomend using the app tapatalk, its platform easily allows you to add photos from your phone.

Glad it worked! Looking forward to your tank developing, especially that glosso carpet

I've read carbon isn't good for planted tanks because it absorbs the liquid fertilizer. If this is true, what should I replace it with? I'm using a Fluval 106 cannister filter and currently have fluval biomax rings in my other media tray.
