Forgive the tank, tomorrow I will be cleaning
and possibly moving a few plants around. And my "wolf" pack tends to have way too much testosterone! They are constantly pulling up plants and rearranging to their liking. This is the Finnex 8g tank; I have had it up for about a month after tearing it down and moving out of state and starting over. I am excited to say that since I have upgraded the lights I am starting to get pearling! I am so excited, something is finally working!
Here is where I need help.
I thought when I chose my plants they would have a bit more contrast... none to be found. What would you suggest for additional plants that might provide more contrast yet stay on the smaller side? Would you change the plant layout? If so, what do you think would be pleasing?
Over all I am pretty happy with it (although, I could do without my wolf pack if any one local wants to adopt them!) But it really seems to be lacking... well, lacking something but I am just not sure what.
Thank you for any suggestions or ideas, I really need them!

I need to get a few more test kits to see what else might be going on from the co2 side.
