Rate My Tank Please!

https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/yo...do=view&id=791

So I need to put a new picture up, it will be up momentarily. The tank has been up for one month and it is doing exceptional. The riccia is still getting established but my plants are doing exceptionally well.

Please rate my tank.

Okay, my picture has been updated, the old picture sucked. Today is the one month anniversary of my tank set up. I will make sure to have another picture every month.

Just make sure they are not concrete based. I heard that it can cause silicates to rise or something.

Well like I said I have been running this thing for a month today and none of my tests or PH have changed because of it, nothing alarming in the water level or water quality. All my fish are doing fine. All 5 tetras, 3 SAE's, and 50 plus shrimp are real happy. Only my baby guppy doesn't look good but that isnt due to the water quality. I don't know what happened but about a week ago she must have gotten hurt or something because now she has a humped back when she never did. You haven't gotten a clue to how that might have happened do you? I reckon you can't fix this.

I would isolate it and watch to see if he eats properly, how he swims and if he is a slow swimmer/eater then I dont think it would survive with other fish. Those are usually used for culls with breeders and fed to other fish.

i have had quite a few female guppies develop that, more lately then before. they seem to swim equally well, but the deformation becomes more and more pronounced as time goes on. basically its a functional, but ugly fish. i believe it is a cause of inbreeding. since i have had a guppy colony for years and years, and only lately have i started to see this (about to years ago i stopped adding the occasional female for genetic variability).
