65G High Planted Community Tank

This is my first posting, 3 weeks into planting my 65G tank. I've just made a quick webpage on my site with info and photos showing the difference in 3 weeks. Here's one picture for today, but if you have time, check out the others on my fish page: http://www.donbryn.com/Fish/Fish.php All the info on maintenance, plants, fish, is on there.

I can't believe how fast the plants are growing. First pruning today and I took out 2/3 of the Brazilian Ivy and one baby Kleiner Bar Sword.

I'm so excited I would love to hear some feedback.

Substrate: Eco-complete with sand and gravel on top. The black in the sand is the eco-complete getting mixed with the sand.

Hey looks pretty good. growing well.

Have you thought about tying some moss to that stick in there? I think it'd look good as a moss tree or whatever. Make it look a bit more natural.

I'm not really feeling the piece of red slate leaned up there in the center.

Other than that though it looks like a great tank and the fish look happy too.

PATIENCE IS KEY.... AND A GOOD ALGAE SCRAPER

Yes, I have just this week thought about what to do with the stick. What kind of moss would look/grow well?

I'm not sure about the slate either, but I built that whole rock/wood structure as one piece, so I'm stuck with it. I was thinking slate for angelfish eggs. . . but I don't think it's steep enough anyway.

Thanks for the feedback.
