Office 20gal

well i got my boss to allow what i called a small tank in my cube he thinks its big. i mean its only a 20gal tank its small in comparison to a 180gallon right any ways i digress

this is my first real attempt at a planted tank all previous tanks were just attempts to keep plants alive.

the tank consist of
Red Val's in the background with
java moss (yet to be attached) on my drift wood.
4 plants on the side of my tank Forgot name please ID.
and I'm hoping Java Fern to be added very soon as a centerpiece

the tank has 1.4watts per gallon so it is a low light tank
there are no ferts out side of some root sticks (hoping to get wonder+gro tabs soon)
the substrate consists of fluorite black as a base for now and pool filter sand as a cover.

my tank inhabitants are
7 amano Shrimp
and one crystal red ship more to come when the store gets its next shipment next week.

i have not decided on the fish yet I'm thinking CPD or Bolivian blue rams

here are some inprogress photos of my tank i still need to get a new background to keep more of the light in

well thats it constructive comments welcome also better shots to come i forgot my tripod at home
