Nice looking tank. I can't wait to see how it progresses.

Quite the exciting time, starting with something fresh and a vision of what you want to do!

Is your heater stuck down in the substrate? I am not sure if that's OK. I have heard that can cause them to over heat and possibly fail.

light looks blue . . . you have white bulbs? 50/50 and atinics are no good for plants (plus they don't look that great with plants IMO).

BTW-- where's the hardscape?
