whjdm069 40g breeder

So setting up a 40g breeder. Got a stand that I can put the 10g under. Here are some of the specs:
Finnex ray 2
fluval 306
eco complete
co2
various pieces of drift wood

No real theme just drift wood and plants. Thinking I will plant tall on the outsides and low towards the center. I am going to get egg crate to elevate one or both pieces of drift wood. Looking to give depth and create a path threw the wood. I plan to stay with a few different plants. Not sure how many yet. Here is a pic to show the direction I am headed. Any advice is welcome.

The 10g is also gonna get a make over. The girlfriend is going to scape that tank. She is trying to figure out what she wants to do. We both bounce ideas of each other.

2-15-14 update

So I got the tank together a week ago and added plants Thursday 2-13-14. I did add an additional light to the setup. Went with the planted plus. Not sure what I plan to do just kinda winging it. More to come as I add plants and they start to grow.

new update

Added more plants. Lots of algae but hopefully it will slow up a bit. Going to start using excel to see if it helps bring it under control. Lots oh hair algae. Well enjoy the pics. These were taken 2-26-14.

I am liking the driftwood as well. Can't wait to see it once everything has grown in.

Well tank is doing good. Just had a severe case of hair/thread algae. Used the one two punch method. Thanks dark cobra. Started planting my glosso. Crossing my fingers. Move a couple other plants around and did a little trimming. Enjoy the pics.

Tank is doing okay. Starting to get hair algae in the glosso. Will have to see how it goes.

Latest pics. Removed a few plants So it's less clutter. Plus a few plants were getting shaded.
