Planted Fluval flora

Here is the start of my planted fluval flora

Tank: fluval flora 7 gallons
Filtration: eheim 2213 with lily pipes
Light: 10k par 30 led bulb
Co2: paintball co2 with Inline diffuser
Heater: not sure if I need one
ADA power sand, Amazonia, and powder Amazonia

May get rid of the ricca and plant some dwarf hair grass in the back and i plan to get more HC and plant the foreground more densely.

As far as fish go:

1-2 Pea puffers
2-3 Otto's

maybe something else, not sure

For the pea puffers I think you may have to add more plants, make it somewhat dense. I currently have 3 pea puffers in my 8 gallon biocube & when I had barley any plants they were nipping at each other. Now after making it a little more dense they are fine, only time they get angry towards one another is during feeding time, they will try to steal the food from each other & end up kissing. By far my favorite fish in the small range. they will get accustomed to seeing you, I can feed them with my hands & pet two of them
