Looking really good, that sword is looking a little too big for the tank though :/ Maybe try a compact sword? Might look more proportionate, although to be honest I'm not sure how big they actually get.

Too cool. What is the status on the algae issues?
I decreased the photoperiod to 7 hours per day, and elevated the light another couple inches above the surface. The floating HC looks healthy, and the hair algae isn't coming back.

I should start planting today and I'll have some pics tonight.
