Off to a nice start!
Looking great so far! What type of apistogramma are you planning to put into this tank?
Have you tested the water? IME dirted tanks cycle quickly.
Adding them as I can, I'm not to worried about how it looks just trying to get it ready for the triple red's. I added some more today I'll go take a pic.I would add many more plants - as in 70% of the tank area should be covered when looking from the top. Just a suggestion. In the 1st 2 months floaters will help absorb extra nutrient if any/help avoid algae.
