Thanks all. Regarding the plants, there is no single answer but lighting is most important. Based on my limited experience, it's all about the combination of light intensity, photoperiod, CO2 levels, quality ferts, weekly pruning and some patience. All those details should be in this thread but if not I will answer any specific questions.

That said, this tank is being broken down since managing the pH with those rocks and the small volume of water is annoying. I already have a 17g ADA 60p imitation cycled and filling in. Will make a new thread for it.
