this is my back up tank for the contest, my 60P didn't come out as well as i wanted, I have 10 days left to enter this tank, cutting it close

the first pic is from about 2 months ago

the second and third pics are from today,

I added an extra 260 watts of light, boosted the CO2, and started dosing 30+ pumps of ADA step 3 ferts daily and 3 drops of green gain, trying to get some new tops for the contest pic, this was trimmed 3 days ago, also the bocapa and moss were added in 3 days ago

plants;

Rotala Indica
Rotala Macranda SP
Rotala Macranda
Rotala Magenta
Rotala verticularis
Rotala Nanjenshen
Heteranthera Zostrapholia
Micranthemum Micranthemoides
Dwarf Hair Grass
Marsilea SP
Hydrocotyle Sibitherpoides
Glosoostigma
Xmass moss
Bocapa Caroliniana
Riccia

for the contest pic i plan on adding 50 cardinal tetras

I personally like the first pre-trim picture: looks more balanced to me.
Best of luck with the competition.

In picture 2, what are the pendant lights? I am looking for something similar. Thanks!

What happened to the dwarf hair grass? The first pic looks good. Fish will help - don't overwhelm it with too many - it's all about balance. Looking good. Good luck!!!

I also think the first picture looks the best, but it still looks good now :)

ranked 600th world ranking which is #3 from the US
Congrats. It looks really good. According to IAPLC results 600 is actually #8 from the US. Pretty impressive either way.
