Question My first tank. Suggestions and comments

Hello all.

I'm am a new excited owner of a 30 gallon aquarium. I plan on getting another 5 gallon bedside tank and a 55 gallon down the road.

Check out my tank video on YouTube. I plan on documenting my tank experiences.

I recently potted all my plants in a gravel/laterite mix in the hopes of improving growth.

My one sword was showing signs of browning leaves which is what made me switch to potted. It doesn't seem to be making a difference. Then again it has only been 2 days.

I am wondering if I should be trimming any browning leaves. Now don't get me wrong. They still don't look terrible. I just want them to be pure green and lush .

I attempted pictures with my iPhone. But they look very green in the pictures. So they arnt really worth posting.

Anywho. Check out the video and comment

the plants looks healthy : ) if i would you, i will try to hide the pots whit rocks, that way it could look more natural, but that's how i like my tanks natural looking.
