ThatGuy's 20 Long Planted



Well, I got my plant order yesterday, and decided it was time to show it off. Here are some quick stats:

Fluval 100W heater
Cascade 100 and Cascade 150 filters
Coralife 30" T5NO (2x18W)
Flourite (bottom layer) and Eco-Complete (top)
API Leaf Zone
Seachem Excel
API Stress-Zyme

1 German Blue Ram
3 Rummynose Tetras
3 Amano shrimp
2 Otos
1 Zebra Nerite snail

Anubias Nana
Anubias Congensis
Argentine Swords
Brazilian micro Swords
Broad leaf Sword
Bacopa moneywort
Carolina Camboba
HC Dwarf Baby Tears
Red Melon Sword
Wisteria

The crypts and lilly in there, I'm getting rid of. I'm happy with the camboba and HC, but the HC doesn't seem to be rooted, though it's not floating up. What are some good plants besides wisteria, ambulia, and camboba for getting thick coverage on my sides?

Here's a few more pics:




There you can see how curly the bacopa is. Will that straighten out?

Looking good. Let it clear up, grow for a few weeks, and things will straighten out. The Cabomba is beautiful.

Consider adding a (black?) background... You could try Javaferns for some side coverage. Anubias could work too.

A 20gal tank isn't really a Nano, not sure why you posted it in this section.

I agree with adding a black background. You'll be amazed how much of a difference it will make.
