Smile 20G Tank up and running!!

Finnaly! I thought it was never gonna happen! So, right now I only have my old Neon Tetras (11) and my Neon Swordtail pair, but, I like it. Here's a picture:


Hopefully I will have a new light on and some plant in by... oh, maybe the 22. I've gotta order the light online and then get some peat, a black background, and a CO2 system.

So whatcha think so far? Remember this picture was taken not 30 minutes after the tank was up and running.

LOL, sorry, I don't think any plants like 15W on a 20G tank, so I'll hold out until the light comes in.

I think that's why there were no comments yet. But I like the wood, and is that all sand at the bottom...or is there something below it for the plants to root in.

That is only a covering of sand, below it is 1-2" of Seachem Flourite.

Thanks,
Josh

Ok, I ordered the 24" 65W Coralife Aqualight minutes ago, so it should be here within a couple of weeks. Tomorrow I'll try to go buy a black background, hagen co2 system, and some peat. Then when the light gets here, I'll go buy the plants.
