Nice! How many CRS did you start off with?

I like the tank, but you really need a foreground plant to fill in that big empty patch. Glosso would look neat in there.

I only started with 12. There might be 40-50 in there and there are 4 berried right now so im gunna have to sell soon. Im just not sure that the glosso would grow in the tank given the light.

I think the best environment for it is high light and CO2 where it stays compact and small vs. low light and no CO2 where it grows taller and leaves are more spread open.
