I have that tank. Love the look but the filter pump is a pain. So it sits in a closet. hehe

You are off to a great start.

My planted tank. 55 gallon fluorite substrate over soil, 64 watts of light, excel twice a week. Weekly water changes. Angelfish pair, guppies, BN plecos and otos. Redone 11/13/2012
One non planted tanks. 75 gallon.

Moss up a couple of rocks and they'll be fine. Tank looks to have got off to a good start.

I have had to replace mine twice. It is very very hard to get in and out of that tiny whole and to get that tube on and off.
