15 gallon long work tank

As a result of my thread here: https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/lo...ght-excel.html

I started this tank as a dry start. I guess AS is king as the growth is there, but way slower than what I've seen of similar setups with AS.

Specs:

15 gallon long
Rena Smart Filter 30
24" Coralife t5 (2 - 14w bulbs)
1 bag Eco complete

Flora so far:

HC
E. Tenellus
Ludwigia Arcuata
Bacopa Carolinia

I am doing this with EI and Excel (no pressurized because it's in my office).

The following posts will have the pics. Sorry for the bad pics, but my office is by a window (hence the painted black background) and the tank is a salvaged sump I bought used.

Don't have any new pics with the new filter on it yet and filled up to the brim. Will be doing that once I have more plants and some fish.

I plan to stock with:

2x yellow BNP (L144)
12x black neons
8x emporer tetras
6x Amanos

Bunch of randow cherry shrimps from my other tanks.
