new plants..and a video.added fish/plany list updated 5/18

75 gal African cichlid tank. Added some more crypts and Anubis to the tank. Any thoughts?? I still need to clean things up a bit. Everything is growing just need to trim some dead/dying leaves and to clean some dust algae off of some leaves now that I got my flow were I need it to be.

Love the background.

What light are you using and how far away from the water line is it?
