15 gallon Need suggestions(56K Warning)

I'd appreciate any suggestions and/or comments you guys might have on my tank. Currently it's a 15 gallon but hope to move up to a 20 gallon later on this summer.

Tks Dan

That's what I was thinking. I went to a local Pet shop the other day and one of the guys said that it is hard to keep plants with Red pigment. He pointed to the shops planted tank and said "Even with the strongest light (Metal halide) it's hard to keep them alive for more then a few weeks.

What is the plant near the center, to the left of the crypt, in front of the bacopa? I would suggest seperating the bunch of stem plants on the right into smaller groups and finding a new home for that sword. Plants all look nice and healthy, good work.
