you need some more plants. get some swords, they do great in almost all tanks. add a moss carpet (they are very easy to care for). you can use vals and stems for a background.

Thanks. I haven't been getting more because of the plecos. They need some free space to swim and rest. I have been looking for altum angels, any idea were I could find one?

You could plant some plants on the right side. The Anglefish like plants.

You obviously are more into the fish than plants, for as a planted tank it is not finished.

yeah, the plecos havent been digging the plants out but they do break them sometimes when they fight. I will get maybe a few more plants, I just havent been to a good LFS yet.

I think the blinds look rather cool as a background.

The susbtrate looks a bit thin for plants.

Looks very well cared for, clear water, moderately stocked. Hope you get hooked with plants.
