Here is a photo from a couple weeks ago after I finally added some fish.
30 Ember Tetras
10 Pygmy Cory
and, as of yesterday, 13 Green Jade Neocardinia that I picked up at the Aquatic Experience Expo in Schaumburg, IL
I ended up removing one of the Ocelot Swords. It was just a bit too crowded behind that driftwood.
Also, I had hoped that the reineckii "purple" would grow taller than the reineckii "mini". You cant really see it back there, but overall Im pleased with how it looks.
The Vallisneria melted back quite a bit and didnt really start to grow back until very recently. Hopefully that will grow up to cover the back part of the tank.
I also ended up removing the moss when it became overgrown with a hair algae. Imagine my surprise when a couple small pieces survived and reattached themselves. Theres the piece on the Anubias roots and another on the smaller driftwood on the left (doesnt show up well in the photo).
