40G Breeder Planted Turtle Tank

Hey Everybody,
Been a long time reader on here but have never gotten the chance to post anything. Figured I would start a journal as my tank has come a long ways in recent months. This is my first tank, and I started out with a very basic set-up, with no living plants about 10 months ago, and have kind of learned along the way.

Flora:
Melon Sword (Echinodorus osiris)
Staurogyne Repens
Red Temple (Alternanthera reineckii)
Cryptocoryne Wendtii 'Green"
Java Fern

Fauna:
Razorback Musk Turtle
Bronze Cory x 2
Reticulated Cory x 2
Bristlenose Pleco
Rummynose Tetra x 5
German Blue Ram (Female)
German Gold Ram (Male)
Otocinclus Cats x 4

Equipment:
40g Breeder (Petco $1/Gallon Sale)
Current USA Freshwater+ X 2
SunSun HW302 Filter
Hydor Koralia Circulation Pump
5LB CO2 Canister w/ Milwaukee Regulator & Bubble Counter

Nutrients:
Seachem Flourish
Aquavitro Activate
Aquavitro Synthesis

I've attached some photos for your viewing pleasure. Please feel free to comment/critique

He definitely likes to burrow under the driftwood, but I haven't had any problems with him uprooting plants. I have tried to use plants that have fairly strong root systems because he does climb/walk all over them.

I like the photos and the tank looks good, is that plant sideways all the way on the left. What camera are you using?

Thanks coldwater.. The plant was sideways, i thought the java fern would turn up towards the lights but it did not so I had to find a different crack in the driftwood to squeeze it into. I am actually just using the camera on my iPhone 4.
