my new 80 gallon planted

hello all I just finished setting up an 80 gallon planted aquarium for a client in the local boston area. the tank is in a store called skipton pet center so if your ever around boston check the tank out. here are some pics taken about a week and i finished scaping the tank. they forced me to use all seachem substrates and fertilizers which i never use so it was a new challenge for me let me know what you think.





fauna: threadfin rainbowfish
flora:
anubias nana petite
micro sword
blyxa japonica
hyrophila kompact
limnophila athromatica
rotala indica
didplis diandra
lobelia cardinalis
pogostemon sellatus broad leaf

Nice scape!
I'm a fan of the H. Kompact- once it fills in it will be very lush and dense.
What are the stems on the far right and left?

It's looking pretty nice. It should look even better as it matures.

How's the move treating you?

It makes me want to go out and buy seachem products to try to achieve this look. Great job. Love the wood scape!

BTW do you still have any of that little foreground plant you collected in FL? If so, how is it doing?
