jhunt's 60 gallon, the one that started it all

This is my first fish tank. It's been set up since April of 2010 and it's gone through a lot of changes in its short life. It started as a sand bottomed ugly tank with a Magnum 350 filter. I finally have the scape set up so I kind of like it so i though I'd share. Current set up is:

60 gallon tank
2x54W T5HO Hagen Glo
Marineland C-360 Canister Filter
165 GPH Petco Powerhead
10lbs. Pressurized CO2 with a Milwaukee regulator

Plants include:
Amazon Swords
2 anubias
Hygrophilia Augustofolia
Hygrophilia Corymbosa
Houttuynia Cordata (bog plant, hasn't melted yet)
Parrot's Feather
Micranthemum Umbrosum
Java Moss

Livestock includes:
15 Glow Light Tetras
2 Kribensis
10 khuli loaches
1 Rainbow Panchax killifish
1 striped raphael catfish
1 zebra danio
3 killifish I got from Bruce, don't know species
6 otocinclus
2 julidochromis ornatus (rescued from my cichlid tank)
1 blue mystery snail
