First planted tank

Hey guys this is a picture of my tank. First tank I've ever had. Water is still not as clear as I'd want it to be but I'm working on that! Tell me what you think of it, and be honest. I can take criticism!

Beautiful, I love the driftwood! ps; I've found guppies to be not hardy at all, and they either get picked on by other fish or they pick on other fish. Either way, not good fish, although they are pretty!

Wish my first tank looked that nice. I only wish that the substrate was darker but that's just because I prefer darker colors.

That's really too bad they're such beatiful fish! In any case there's a bunch of other fish I plan to get and that would explain why my fancy guppies always died so fast. Thought it was my fault. And thanks so much!

Thank you! And I prefer darker colors myself but the sand I really wanted, tahitian moon sand, was not in my budget. But my next tank (whenever that may be) will definitely have that beautiful black sand

I'm am using a dual T5-NO bulb light fixture, Seachem Flourish liquid ferts, no CO2 but I'm probably going to be adding a paintball system soon, 29 gallon, Marineland Emperor 280 with a Bio-wheel
