60-P First Planted Tank

Hi this is my first planted tank.







i ordered a CO2 tank and it should be coming soon
i have 4 24W light bulbs
i have some plants in there but im not sure what kind it is. some guy gave me some so i took them.

i wanted to add more plants to the tank any suggestions?
also what fish do you guys think would look nice? i was thinking about electric blue rams but i wanted to have a school of fish so im not sure.

some new plants

My Aunt lives on Honolulu and has a couple of tanks. I know she has "shrimp" but I'll find out more details. I know this might sound silly but are there a few stores there to pickup fish supplies?

I've checked out this place several times... they just have the usual stuff. No selection for planted tanks and haven't seen any shrimps.

They have crs, they bring it in once a week... They call it bumble bee shrimp or something though. Just look for it near the register, or ask the owner about it, he'll help you out~

Or buy from someone here on the forums. A lot of guys have crs, and their prices are MUCH better than buying it from petsplus. I think grade C/B CRS from petsplus is like $8 a shrimp or so.
