First planted

Had to take down my salt water and started to miss having a aquarium so it seemed like a good time to try out a little planted tank. Traded some things into a shop by me and walked out with a 12x12 deep blue cube, LED, and Filter.

Dropped in bio complete and some rock. Not sure how to feel about the layout yet be we shall see.

I have been thinking about what to add to it. I would like some real low ground cover through most of it then some taller grass along the back-row. Want to keep it simple and not put in a huge variety in. As for fish I'm a little torn. I either want to do a few Neons or a Beta. Im a little worried that the beta will jump.

I have not dropped in a thermometer yet but it feels like it might need a heater. It would be nice if i could find something that will fit in the HOB. CO2 might be in the future but im not sure on that yet. Done have space for anything big. Paintball tank sized would work.

Would love some thoughts on where to go next.

Dwarf baby tears for ground cover and dwarf hairgrass for the back. Maybe an Anubias nana to add some height. That should cover nicely. Some driftwood in the back would look nice too.
