My 29 gallon Noobie Tank

Hey everyone I'm new here with tons of questions.

Here is my current setup. I have had the tank up and running for roughly a month now and it's my first in the hobby.

Cheers.

Latest addition. Any suggestions for a tankmate for him? I understand to not add another male gourami.

Looks great and will get better with time. My experience with cories has been bad as they dug up a lot of dirt some of which settled on the plants despite the best of filters. (I use an Ehiem 2217). So preferable to introduce them after you have a proper carpet.

Amazing job! It looks cool and I really like this lightening. For sure you put a lot of effort in this aquarium but it was worth. I am waiting for updating, because you said that there will be more fishes I am looking forward more photos!

Now I have s from one of the plants I added. Lol I looked up ways to rid of them but I think I may let them go for a bit and cut back the feeding just a tinge to make sure they don't go bananas. Thoughts? Click image for larger version

Yea, I've notice the dustings on the anubus that I try and brush off when I do my water changes.
