looking good all you need now is to let the plants grow start triming and re-plating to fill it up
I might have a couple of plants going soon let me know if you are interested

The driftwood adds a nice effect.

But the glowlight and cardinal tetras really ought to be in schools of 6 or more.

by frameless, does it have some kind of "frame" (usually black plastic or wood) around the top and bottom seems of the glass? or is it nothing but glass to glass and some silicone?

it's looking pretty good but the plumbing is an eye sore though. also, it looks like your tv isn't fully level across the top surface. the outsides stick up a bit on both ends. i don't know if that makes any difference though since you have some kind of rug or mat under the tank.
