20g L planted tank

Alright so after replacing my 10g with the 20g i have everything up and running now.
So far i have
- Fluval 205(i got it oversized for when i grab my 40b in the future)
- 1 100w heater
- 2 27w full spec. cfl suspended right above the water 3rd on the way
- 20lbs eco-complete along with some other gravel because i didn't have enough substrate

Fauna: 7 Cardinal Tetras, 3 Cherry Barbs, 5 Lemon Tetras, 2 Clown Loach, and 1 Clown Pleco

Flora: Rotala Indica, anubias nana, blyxxa Japonica, Hemianthus micranthemoides, and Marsilea Minuta.

I also have 2 2l bottles of diy co2 and i does excel. I am planning on setting up a paintball co2 setup when i get my car up and going. Also i dose flourish since i get a nice discount on it.

Here are some pictures. Also in one of the pics i have a random plant that i took a picture of. Can anyone tell me what it is? It grows pretty fast.

Thanks! I love the tank one of my favorites so far. I don't know if i like the wood on the left, but it hides the equipment.

Just added 5 serpae tetra's to the tank and so far they are schooling with the lemons, which is way cool. They are the most playful fish i have so far chasing each other around playing in the current.

Also put in some black fluorite to add to the depth of the substrate.

I will post some pics tomorrow of the tank as i am getting some new plants in and get to remove the african root on the right side finally.

The crypt that i have is still unidentified, but growing pretty fast for a crypt. It has been a chore keeping the HM down with those loaches -.-

Thanks for looking!

Even though i'm getting zero to none feedback at all i will post this anyways
Here are some more pictures, but not real good ones... I really have to work on my photography skills or maybe a new camera as this one is getting pretty old.

Here is the cute little loach that does all the digging and removal of my HM

Fts

The newest inhabitant to which this is his third and final chance a mean bugger

Now just playing with angles

Nice tank! I really like the branchy driftwood.

Just a suggestion-- try taking pictures without flash. The reflection can be very distracting.

Love your tank!

Kharma,

That tank looks great! Love the wood -- specially that heavy piece on the left!

More pictures as your plants grow out, please!
