My first attempt

Hey guys ive just started a planted tank up a few months ago and heres what it looked like a month or so ago:



The plants are: e. tennelus (much fuller now), h. polyserma, water sprite, the ambulia is now gone, as is the purpley lookin plants in the front corners, anubias, and there is still some unknown plant in the back left corner.

Now it has added: Singapore moss to the driftwood a bit more water sprite, a new double light, and am going to get some spiral vallis.

I only have a few fish in there am going to get more soon.

I just have that one powerhead for filtration
DIY CO2 (coke bottle) will be upgrading to proper CO2 system in the coming months.
The tank is a standard 30 inch.
I only use warleys sprout as a fertiliser and the substrate is just plain gravel.

Any help with as what to fertilise with would be helpful!!!

Good start.... I think the pot should be moved into a more out of sight position. The whole reason for pots is for the fish to feel secure. They won't feel that sense of security when the whole front of the pot is out in the open. It would also look nicer because the pot won't be the focal point of your design like it is now... Just IMO...
