my 36 gallon bow front

Just wanted to post a few new pics of my 36 bow front. I set it up 3 1/2 weeks ago and as of today it is fully cycled!
I have a coralife 30" T5 NO twin bulb fixture with 7600 and colormax. I just ordered a 10k bulb last night... the colormax is definatly cool looking, but not ideal for plant growth...
I finally got it pretty planted and setup how i like it so i figured i'd share...

Good question... I dont know what i was thinking when i got it... There is half a bag of natural stone and 1 bad of Eco-complete mixed into it also...
Hopefully moss with cover it up... i really dont want to try and take it out at this point... otherwise i could mix in a bag of black gravel... or even better i'll spray paint it black...LOL just kidding...

For some reason the blue gravel doesn't seem to bother me in this tank. :P

as far as plants go i really dont know what most are called. I'm much more familiar with terrestial plants then aquatics... I know one kinda is something indica, anubia, wisteria, i believe the grass type plant to the left is not a real aquatic and will probably die, we'll see... honestly i really dont know what the others are called. The one purpleish plants in the front are crooked from the store just getting the shipment in and the plants not seeing light directly ahead... and between the 2 groups of indica there is a group of purpleish plants that also are twisted due to the same thing... theyre already straightning out and its been 1 day... i give them 2 more days to be upright...
Most of the plants came from a store called "Aquarium Center" in south jersey... the place is great...

The pink one looks like Limnophila aromatica, the green on either end of the wood is some kind of anubias, the one in the back right could be Cabomba furcata. If you can get closer pictures of them we can help you find out what they are.
