20 Gallon two sided show

Hey TPT,

So recently I relocated about 8 hours and had the "fun" task of figuring out what I was going to do with my 15 gal low tech, 12 gal long medium tech and 4 gal "whatever I had laying around" tank. I transported everything very well but once in the new house I decided I wanted to start it all over in a 20gal long I had kicking around.

So this is what I am have set up and will be refilling my co2 in a couple weeks to add on.

Tank: 20 gal long
Lighting: E-series full spectrum dimmed by 20%
Filter: Ehiem classic & Airstone driven UGF for 1/4 of the tank
Substrate: ADA aquasoil
Hardscape: Seiryu Stones & Drift wood + Cholla
Ferts: half dose Nilo's easy EI & Excell for now.

50+ RCS
~30 Malawa Shrimp
1 Siamese Algae eater
MTS, Ramshorn & Assassin Snails
and 1 lone Neon Tetra

Plan on adding:
20+ CRS
12 CPD(I know fish+shrimp=risky)

Downoi - All melted just stems left...
AR Mini
Mixed Anubias
Java Fern Regular, narrow and philipine
Fissedan and Xmas moss
DHG Belem
Blyxa Japonica
S. Repens
Dwarf chain sword
Sunset Hygro
Crypt Wendtii Bronze
and mixed Rotala and ludwigia red

I will be restarting my 12gal long with a ton of moss I have around, ohko stones, ada malaya or amazonia and that will become the tank for the higher grade CRS or my TB project.

Here is the tank a few weeks + 4 shots from today where I pulled the blyxa and moved it to where my downoi melted at.
