New Planted Tank Set up

Hi folks. I just want to share my 1 month old setup. =)

Full Specs of the setup:

Tank - Ultum Nature 60U Rimless tank

Lighting - Basic SB Reef Light
-- Photo period: 8 AM - 12 PM (On), 12:01 PM - 4 PM (Off), 4:01 PM - 8 PM (On)
Fertilizer - Nilocg Thrive +S and Seachem Iron (I like it simple that's why I did not go for EI dosing. Please don't judge me)

Fauna:
- Threadfin Rainbows

I really like your tank. My favorite is all that buce and whatever that red plant is in the center in the back. Could we get a complete plant list please. Thanks

Ps: you could start a journal of this tank

Help!

I don't know where to post this but I need help identifying these baby fry. I found them this morning with no idea how they got here, because they look like guppy fry and I only have female guppies. Can you please help me identify it. It could only be guppy or platy. I also had one pregnant ghost shrimp but these don't look like shrimps to me because they have little fins.

Definitely don't hijack this thread, LOL. Go to the fish subforum of the planted tank forum and post there.
