My new 10 gallon

Here is my new 10 gallon I just set up about 3 weeks ago. The fish are two Kribensis and an otocinclus. The left side has some small stargrass stems, but they arent growing to well. I might just replace them with some more M. Micranthemoides. The tank just got finished going through an algae cycle so things dont look to good.

Plants:
-Nesea pedicellata
-M. Micranthemoides
-Stargrass
-Ludwigia repens
-Hygrophilia Polysperma 'Rosanervig'
-Anacharis






Specs:
-10 gallon All-glass tank
-3 15 watt NO flourescent tubes
-2 hagen co2 systems
-100% flourite gravel

What do you guys think?

I really like it a lot. I do however think it would look even better with a background.

wow! thats really nice! when your foreground fills in, that'll be one sweet tank! I think this tank would look better without a background. It will make it more open and warm. What are you gonna put in it?

I think black would go great with the browns and reds that you have in your tank. I assume you are going with a purchased background. If so the blacks usually have blue on the reverse side.

I agree with black as well... What kind of fish are you thinking about having?

I actually have two kribensis in there right now but they are going to get moved shortly and I will probaly replace them with some type of small tetra.
