So I thought I'd create a thread to help document my tank's progress, and get some feedback along the way.

Fish:
6 White Tip Tetras
1 BN Pleco
2 Angel Fish
3 Swordtails
3 Siamese Algae Eaters

Plants:
Amazon Sword
Vals
Anubias
Bacopa
Java Moss
Moss Ball
Duckweed

Satellite+, Eheim 2217, and DIY CO2

I know the tank is a work in progress, and seems a little unorganized, but I don't mind. The rock in the center is being used to hold down the driftwood, but the driftwood is pretty resilient. I'm hoping to attach some zip ties to it to get rid of the rock.

Thanks! I know it needs a lot of work, but I don't mind taking my time. I'm thinking of adding a black background sometime soon, and of course a ton more plants.

So today I added a black background, and I'm amazed how much it makes the colors of the fish and plants come to life. I also realized I didn't unwrap the bacopa from the metal wrap, so I did that today and spread them out a bit... hopefully this helps the bottom leaves from melting.

Sorry for the crappy phone pics... don't have a highend camera :icon_conf

So I need some suggestions for plants. I'm looking to get some cabomba and also a type of Anubias that will spread along the long piece of driftwood. But not sure on others?

Any other suggestions that would work for my tank would be greatly appreciated!
