40G breeder - first planted

My first real planted tank - messed with some LL plants before, this is my first real attempt at a proper full planted tank... Just got my new PC 2x96W for x-mas, went up yesterday!...picked up the swords at the back of the tank about 2 hours ago, just planted them so the pictures are a bit cloudy..SMS was stirred up a bit

special thanks to jrs for the super great deal on just about all the plants you see in there! - still have some more in a spare tank as I try to re-arrange this one the way I want it.... in a few weeks/months it will be finished

dosing is,
KNO3 - every other day
KH2PO4 - every other day
trace - 10mL every other day

DIY co2, flourite base, with SMS on top. emperor 400, will add a small pump on the left to circulate some more...

not much livestock in there, some neons, oto's so far

thanks for looking!

Looks like a good start. Top it off and add some more wood to the right side. Also, you maight want to move that tall stem plant on the front left to the back right.
