New member tank pictures!

Hey guys I'm new here. I've been doing aquarium forums for a while but wanted a more specialized plant loving community so I figured I'd check it out.

One pic is of my 10g with fish
Other is my cycling 29 gallon

Both have newer foreground plants, and I just converted my 10g after switching to Eco complete.

Fluorite and black sand in my 29g.

Any input and criticism is appreciated!

Thank you! Yeah. I haven't had them up and going long planted wise... But once all my plants grow in I hope it'll look better. Hoping my new light I ordered will be good enough to grow carpets in a 29g

How are you injecting co2? Are you fertilizing yet? If not, I would suggest it. I like the little statue. Cute. Looks like you are off to an excellent start.

By the way, I like the layout of the driftwood.

My girlfriend bought me that statue because I love Egyptian stuff! but thank you. I use a diy co2 going into a mini powerhead and a red sea bio generator in my 29 gallon. It seems to be a good amount of co2 but I don't think my red sea thing is working properly... Doesn't put out co2 that often. I use an air stone in my 10g. None of these are 100% effective obviously... You recommend flourish excel? I might need to dose a bit extra

Also the only fert I use is flourish. I dont know a lot about it. I probably need more macro nutrients?

I am the worst to give advice on fertilizers as I am a lean nutrients type person. However, I can tell you I had great success with Seachem's nitrogen, phosphate, potassium and flourish. I just followed the instructions on the bottle and never had an issue. I used to use excel and it did great for me. I found it was especially good to help with co2 issues.
