My 7 gallon planted minibow

My 7 gallon planted minibow is finally complete! I have attached several crappy webcam pics that really dont do any justice, but please let me know what you think and any suggestions are appreciated.

Tank and stuff:

7 gallon AGA minibow
32watt PC retrofit lighting, half 10K half 6700K, and 1 watt LED blue moonlight
Aquaclear 150 with 2 sponges tuned all the way down
50 watt Marineland heater, tank set at 79-81 degrees
Hagen Natural CO2 kit with the DIY recipe
About 10 pounds Seachem Flourite substrate


1 male betta
5 pygmy cories


Java Fern
Java moss
Rotala Wallachi
Banana Plants
Broad Ludwigia
Amazon Sword (getting really big for a 7 gallon)
Tiny bit of floating water sprite

I do 25% water changes weekly, dechlorinate with Prime and dose 4 drops Seachem Flourish a week, change DIY recipe for CO2 every 2 weeks.

OK enough rambling, here are the crappy small webcam pictures....

whole tank, lighting messed everything up


another shot of the betta

amazon sword (im going to prune it with scissors to try to keep it fit for a 7g, i hope it doesnt kill it off!)

thanks for looking! any comments/suggestions appreciated

Sounds awesome dude! I'd love to get some bigger pics though-- and what are your plans for the foreground? Is there any hard scape? I cannot tell! Pics too small!!

thanks, i cant take bigger pics tho i cant afford a digicam and that old crappy webcam is all I have.

anyway I plan on leaving the foreground empty as the pygmy cories spend alot of time up this way theyll have some room
