10 Gallon planted tank

My 10 gallon tank I've been working on for a while. I decided I'd start a journal from here and show everyone what a 10 gallon has the potential to be! Here's a picture with the sun shining through the back:

12/23/11 After working on it for a while, I've got it to a place that I like. I actually just replanted it yesterday with an ROAK and I felt like it needed to be moved around. Just need to keep adding plants.

So far I have:
cryptocoryne spiralis
lace java fern
fissidens fontanus
water wisteria
guppy grass (najas)
amazon frogbit
a few unknown baby plants
various mosses (Got christmas moss, java moss, and willow moss all in a clump so I can't tell what they are. Not complaining because they were an ROAK)

I'm hoping to add some dwarf hairgrass, staurogyne repens, regular java fern, and some nice background plants (can't decide what.)
No CO2
Root tabs
2 60 watt equivalent fluorescent bulbs (light bulb hack!)

If you can't tell I have a bajillion guppies (43 to be exact) and all but 1 were born in my tanks. These are all 23 of my females.

Hope you like it!
