A couple days ago I drastically changed the layout of my tank. I've attached some before and after pictures. Biggest change was changing substrate from blue and green gravel to sand. Also, the only plants I had were watersprite, contortionist val, water wisteria, and anacharis having only 1 of each. Now I've added 3 corkscrew val, 3 green wendtii crypts, 4 sagittaria Subulata, 3 green lloydiella, and 3 cryptocoryne pontederifolia. Because of all my new plants I've finally been able to remove the 2 remaining plastic plants.
I love how it turned out. What do you think of the changes?
Also, is my lighting sufficient for all of these plants? I have a T5 HO 24 watt fluorescent bulb 6500K
