Looks great, What are the inhabatants? Some marbled hatchetfish would look great in the top region of the tank!

maybe the left side of the tank would look better OPEN, and just have a foreground plant occupy that space. just a thought, or anything would be great!

Welcome to the forum...

Nice looking start you have there and you will find that when things begin to grow out you will start to have some real fun with it.

I'll be back here in a month to see the progress !

Everything looks great, but...I say the bunch of stem plants on the left is a bit too thick, the dark patch underneath is too distracting. You also need either some fish or plants with color.

It's hard to tell from the picture but he kinda looks like a guppy to me.

I love your tank. I really like the dark spots. It gives the tank a very wild/natural look to it and ads a sense of mystery.

What is the vining plant in the middle and on the right?
