29G planted tank

Hello,
Just took some pictures of my 29 gallon tank and wanted to post some pictures to share with everyone.
I would welcome any and all comments, suggestions, etc so that I may improve on my skills.

Thanks for viewing my thread!

Please click on any of the thumbnails to see the actual pictures.

Hope you like it!

Here's a picture of the entire tank:

Here's a picture of my pearl gourami and my silver lyretail molly:


An Amano shrimp and a baby bronze cory (born/raised in this tank) share a moment with the camera:

Christmas Moss that has completely overgrown a piece of driftwood that I purchased from Ocean Aquarium in San Francisco:


Here's a baby cherry shrimp that I bought from vinnymac (teeny little cuties!):


Side view of the tank from the left:


Do you see the pinkish white thick lines in the substrate below the plant? They aren't the plant roots...I assure you...they are actually bloodworms that my fishies didn't catch, and therefore, they burrowed into the substrate!

Nice tank, soon or later those sword plants will get too big for the tank.

Yeah, I'm beginning to experience that. I'm finding that I have to keep pruning the leaves so that they don't take over and shade other plants. But, I'll keep it as long as I can get away with it.

Thanks for the compliments!

Wow! Really nice! Everything looks so healthy!

Your swords are going to out grow the aquarium twice as fast since you seem to have everything down pat!

Thank you for your compliments Mike!
I'm glad to hear you approve of my tank. It's always nice to hear that other people enjoy my tank as well.
So you're the second person to tell me that the sword will outgrow the tank quickly. Hmmm I'm gonna have to really keep a close eye on it then.
If later on, it can't be controlled, then I'll have to get rid of it...or instead, put it up on the "swap 'n shop" section

Do you have any tips/suggestions on how I can improve my aquascaping or anything at all?

Thanks again!

Tips? Not really, you seem to know what you are doing!

I'd say watch your aquarium, and look at as many different plants you can. Get a feel for how each different plant would look if you applied it to your aquascape.

That is the best way to develop an aquascaper's eye.
