180 Gallon Journey

Hi all,

My 180 gallon journey is now three months old. Current fish stock is 3 angel fish, 2 zebra danios and 10 cory cats of various species. My current plant list includes dwarf sag, a lot of hornwort, water sprite, staurogyne repens, java fern and some jungle val. Hardscape includes three large pieces of lava rock and some old driftwood I have had. Substrate consists of black diamond blasting sand with osmocote plus root tabs. As far as lighting, very poor at the moment. One 24 inch finnex planted plus, and one 36 inch current satellite. Planning on getting the Make My Led tube style lighting, should put me in the medium light to the entry level high-light category. As far as Co2, nothing yet, waiting for the funds to begin Co2 injection.

As far as my hardscape, I am thinking about breaking one of the lava rocks into pieces and stacking them, maybe making a cave of sorts? As well as trimming down my hornwort as it has engulfed the entire right side. Any suggestions about new plants or the hard scape?
