48 Gallon Pics

Well today I did 2 things with my Tank I added lots of plants and hooked up DIY co2. I added lots of pygmy chain sword (E. Tennellus). My only other plants are the huge amazon swords. The tank is a 48 gallon 20"L 18"W 30"T.
The plants are pearling like crazy since I hooked up the DIY Co2.
Fish list: 2 angelfish and 2 german blue rams and open for more fish suggestions.

I like what you did with the substrate and placement of everything. It should really compliment the layout once the swords acclimate and change form. Only suggestion I can make yet is maybe remove the swords closest to the front, the rear swords will fill that space by themselves in time and it will give you more room for some mid ground plants. If that's the purple-ish variety of chain sword, they should be a nice contrast to the larger swords. You might want to look into the larger pygmy chain variety too (in the lower right corner of the tank in my sig), they look good under Amazon swords IMO. Nice angels.
