GC11's 10 Gal Planted (56k warning)

Well, this isn't a journal, but I'll post pictures of my 10 gallon here. Here's what it has:

Filtration~ Whisper Power Filter 15

Aeration~Rena Air 50

Heater~100 watt Marineland Submer. (turned to lower temp. to heat correctly)

Background~3 Sheets black colored construction paper, stapled together

Substrate~10+ lbs natural stream gravel, 1/4"-1/2"

Light~29 gallon's 20 watt white reflector with 2800K FloraGro bulb

Fertilizer~Tetra FloraPride

Plants~Live plants*1 Vallisneria America, 2 Corkscrew Vallisneria, 1 Wisteria, 1 Rotala Indica, 1 Java Fern| Fake plants*3 Leafy Plants, 2 Hornwort Plants, 1 Hairgrass, 1 Corkcrew Vallisneria

Rock~Lava/Rainbow Rock

Fish~ 6 Glowlight Tetras, 2 Peru Orange Stripe Corydoras Catfish, 2 Albino Corydoras Catfish

Can you spot the nots (the fake plants from the real plants)?

Any advice is appreciated!

Tank shot (the bright green and dark green plants on the left side have been reversed place wise since the picture was taken):

Nice start. I'd suggest slowly working out the fakes with real plants.

Also, make sure the Java ferns rhizome is not buried in the gravel (looks like it is in the pic). Either pin it down by some of its roots or tie it to some decoration with cotton string.

Yeah, I am slowly switching over. As soon as my goldfish move to a big tank I'll be planting the 29 gallon for the 10 gallon fish.

The rotala indica is starting to let off runners every other day or so... So is the wisteria.
