My 5g

Here's 3 months after the setup, I didn't really care for this layout, just planted and let the plants run wild, wanted that type of wild look in this one, I like it. Things should fill up more in the coming months.

whats your lighting? I'm going to overhaul my eclipse system 6 and was wondering what would be good in this sort of tank. Are you using CO2?

Yes they are, but I don't know which one they are. They are so beautiful, white and orange tint.

No stores, I have never bought plants from stores, they have common and algea infested plants. If they are bad plants, they are in bad shape. I have been the all the stores around the LA area. Yes, all of them.
