Ten Gallon Betta Sorority

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaYJ...ature=youtu.be

I set this up the other day. Already had the sorority established but got bored with the tank and gutted it and redid it all.
Here is the current setup:
ten gallon tank
one 18" T8 bulb
DIY CO2
whisper in tank filter
Sea Chem Eco Complete Substrate

Plants:
Anubias nana
Kleiner Bar Sword
Narrow Leaf Micro Sword
Dwarf Sagitaria
Bronze crypt Wendtii
Java Fern
Java Moss
Dwarf Baby Tears
Moss Ball

Right now im dosing excel, comprehensive, and potassium. Any thoughts on the general setup? I know I might need more light but would one more T8 bulb do it?

This looks great! I really love female bettas. I think keeping a group of them is a great idea. I'm setting up a large NPT. I'm thinking maybe female bettas.

Thanks, its the first tank i've ever scaped and planted before filling. I'm pretty happy with the results. So far everything is doing alright, although I know getting the baby tears to grow in this setup might be a stretch.

You need a LOT more plants in. There for line of sight beak up. An ideal sorority you should not be able to see front to back or side to side of tank, needs dense plants going all the way to the surface!

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
