Threw together a little video of my 30g high tech, 3 months in

Hi guys,
I always enjoy watching videos of tanks, and after posting plenty of pictures, I figured I'd upload a video to see what you wall think. Heres some info on the tank:
Lighting- 4 19w cfl's at 5000K inside clamp work lights, 11.5 hours a day

Filtration- ehiem 2013 and 2213, AC 70

CO2- 20 lb pressurized diffused with needlewheel pump on closed loop. Timed 1 hour before lights on and off.

Ferts- Ei dosing, 1/16 tsp CSM +B, 1/4 tsp KNO3, 1/16 tsp KH2PO4, 1/16 tsp K2SO4. Root tabs under the swords to keep 'em happy.

Fish- 10 assorted danio, 16 neon tetra, 2 glow light tetra, 1 silver tip tetra, 1 black phantom tetra, 1 white cloud minnow, 2 red flame gouramis (one isn't acting right though), 2 otto cats, and 2 ammano shrimp.

Plants- H. Difformis (wisteria, far left), Echinodorus argentinensis (Argentine sword, front left and back right), microsorum pteropus (Java fern), myriophyllum pinnatum (milfoil, back right), Rotala rotundifolia (middle back), anubias nana? (middle front), Eleocharis acicularis (Dwarf hairgrass, front right), Jungle Val (Back right), L. Aromatica (Middle left), L. Reopens (middle left), C. Wenditi (middle front), C. somthing (middle front), and unknown plant front middle/left in front of wood.

Looking sweet! Awesome video, the plants are pearling! That's a good sign that they are liking their environment.

Thanks Neon, I turned off all the filtration and co2 injection off for the vid, so all those bubbles are plant produced. This is my first planted tank, and I am certainly hooked!
