My first attempt with freshwater

Hi there everyone! As I was browsing the web, I saw some amazing freshwater aquascapes that really inspired me. I get bored easily, so I change hobbies all the time; I guess I'm into aquariums now


Size: 20 gallon high
Filter: Hagen AquaClear 20
Substrate: Activ-Flora Floracor Black
Lighting: 1 x 23 watt CFL 6500K

I started the tank on 01/23 and it's doing great so far. And if anyone is wondering, my tank is already cycled (took one day) thanks to Tetra Safestart.


First arrangement:


Second arrangement:


Third (and hopefully final) arrangement:

Alternate view:


Any comments and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated! I have some plants from eBay on the way so my tank won't stay barren for long

Thanks for looking! My bacopia, riccia, and rotala should be here tomorrow! I'm really excited. I will most likely spend hours trying to figure out what to put where. Any suggestions?
