My first planted tank - 15 Gallons - No Co2

2 Weeks in and finally cycled, my very first planted tank. Going to get some Galaxy Rasboras tomorrow and later on some CRS.







Not using any Co2, just some Excel and Seachem ferts.

Beautiful, I love bright greens on black substrate. Hydrocotyl looks great smushed in between those rocks. What are the plants with the big lotus looking leaves??

Ember tetras would have a real nice contrast with the gravel and plants. They stay on the small side as well

Yep, never had an aquarium before. I did research for a good solid month and I have a background in design/art.
