new planted 2 footer


So I decided to set up a 40L planted tank, made the effort to try and get it going but it was failing and still is miserably, started to move plants around into my bigger tank and everything just seemed t grow better so I picked up a few more plants and filled it up, 40L still kicking on but not very well, will need to work out why, think lighting is big issue and the filtration.

Anyway here is a pic of the 95L, now just need to let it grow

Back row
Val (new)- not sure if I spread this out to much when I planted and the water flow is pushing it over
hygrophillia polysperma (new)
hygrophillia difformis (been in tank for about a month)- this goes behind the rock and round the side fills in the back right corner a treat and I have had to take heaps out as it just grows so much.

Green leaf plant-(new) not sure what this is just bought it - anyone ID?
Red leaf plant (1 week) not sure what this is again just bought it - ID?. growing roots but colour is very drained think either not enough light or low iron?
Ambulia (1 month) - struggling to grow this one can't actually see if very well in this pic follow the DW to the right hand side and it just visible there sticking up. it is growing now but very fine and delicate.

Left hand side middle to front
Rotala Waliichi (taken from other tank)
in front of DW pink baby tears worried I may have to trim this very often to keep it from being too tall)
right hand side of DW in front of rock didiplis diandra ( from other tank)
front right corner - bacopa of some form I think ( from other tank)

Whoa! Your tank looks beatiful already! One suggestions, I would fix up the background and sort of clear the wet spots and I would scrub the algae. But, everything looks awesome!

yes the background is pretty bad I am going to take it off and re-do it.

the algae on the rock was worse, I just added an SAE and its getting though it.
