The substrate was switched to a more natural brown rock looking one. I also have a piece of driftwood sitting in a bucket right now, hopefully it will be ready in a few days to put into the tank. Ill post a pic soon.

My background first, and then thats with the background on it. The gravel was completly changed from the original multicolor blue green and red, to a more natural looking gravel. The pictures look bad because it was taking from my cell phone. The tank looks alot better in person. I ended up draining 90% of the water and cleaned the glass of the tank. The tank then sat for a while, during this time i retested all the ph and ammonia. im looking into buying a few more plants for the foreground. please feel free to comment, i appreciate advise as well on any plants you think would look nice.
