30 gallon hand me down

My friend, Kriztina, gave me her 30 gallon tank.
This is my first "big" tank since I was a child.
I had two 5 gallon tanks and two 3 gallon tanks.

I added an EHEIM CLASSIC CANISTER 2215, a CORALIFE F/W 36in light fixture and RENA HEATER

Most of the plants are Swords. I have a madagascar lace and some other plants. About 17 plants in all

As far as fish go.....
-1 angelfish that I had since he was nickel size
-7 glowlight tetras
-16 cardinal tetras
-Pair of Balloon Rams (thought they were German Blue)
-3 panda cory fish

I'm dosing with Excel everyday (half a cap) and dosing twice a week with Flourish (half a cap).
And I've been doing weekly water changes of 12 gallons.

Welcome to the Planted Tank. That picture of you with the Eheim is hysterical. What are your plants in the tank? I like the lace sword.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

That's not me with the eheim but my friend. She hated the tank but now loves it and really enjoys the fish.
Most of the plants are swords, I forgot the names of the other plants, have to do some googling
