What do you think of this tank..

I am a total n00b when it comes to the planted tanks. This is my first attempt.
After Setup:

4 weeks later:

36"L X 24"H X 12"W
75wtts of light.
Fluval 304 & Eheim 2026
Dosing Excel & Flourish daily 3ml
DIY C02
PH6.5
weekly 20gal waterchange.
Not sure of the plants names as I got them from a couple friends I have what I think is 3 lotus bulbs that are going nuts since the starting of C02.
5 Giant Danios
Leopard Gourami (which was sold to me as a "leaf fish")
2 Black Veil Angels
Bristlenose Pleco
2 5" Bichirs
2 Apple Snails

Well, I think it looks pretty good. The anacharis has really taken off, as has the crypt (I think that's a crypt--I'm a newbie too). Good work, the only suggestion I would make would be to add some more plants to the background to camoflauge the intakes to your filters.

Looks good. I can't wait to see it when it fills in. Do you have any pictures of the bichirs?

Do your bichirs hunt your danios? I placed a few quarter sized angel fish in my tank, and they got eaten. .

the bichirs leave everyone alone. The Danios are huge.

Looks like the plant growth is good and your photography skills are improving ! I still think the photo taking can be pretty challenging.

Welcome to the addiction!
