My First Planted Tank Evolution

Here are photos from the first three weeks of my tank. This is my first planted tank. 70 gal. Pressurized CO2. Lights. I have two sets on timers HO and MH. 3 wpg up to noon burst 6.5 wpg. I am just now getting algae under control. Had regulator problems, but now I am regulator expert. Ha Ha.

I will probably remove the Angel fish. They keep digging up the dwarf hairgrass. I will also exchange the two swords for Hygrophila as the tank ages.

In the last photo, the water looks dirty, but that is oxygen bubbles and bad photographing. When all the lights are on, everything is kicking out bubbles including the algae.

What do you think?

Looks good!! Maybe when you kick the angles out, you can get some shrimp? Maybe some big Amano's or something. They are so fun to watch.
