My planted 90RR (former reef)

Well, I've been lurking around here for a little while now and am finally satisfied enough with my progress to post a pic. This tank was set up a couple months ago (beginning of June) with 220W VHO, pressurized CO2 w/ DIY reactor, play sand substrate, and DIY filter. Fertilization is a hybrid EI and PMDD that I am still playing with. I still have to reinstall the doors on the stand but other than that it is moving along pretty well. The current stocking list is:

8 Silver Tip Tetras (Hasemania nana)
3 Local raised angels (three more to come to get two pair)
4 Vietnamese Glass Shrimp (that is what the LFS guy told me they were)
2 SAE
9 Rummy nose tetra

I'm trying to grow out the Cabomba to fill in the background more. I have a few little micro swords in the front, but this tank will probably progress like my reef did; small starter plants to propogate to fill the whole tank. I'm not sure I like where the larger swords are but they're going to stay put for the time being until I can accumulate a larger collection.

Nice start.

Pretty sure those are Ruffle swords, they get massive.

I hope so, I've got 90 gallons of space to fill. The one on the far left seems to grow slower/smaller than the one on the right so they might be different. They were originally sold as melon swords since the first leaves were oval shaped. Those leaves have since been replaced with the typical pointy form.
