That's fine; that is "natural" gravel near-identical to what I have in my 115g.

Now that I've seen it, I myself would get a dual-tube T8 fixture, not a T5.

And a very nice aquascape for that sized tank too. Nice work.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thank you It's a work-in-progress lol. Thinking of adding more of the giant vals and cabomba. Also that lone pennywort at the top isn't doing much for cover lol, so maybe a bit more of that too. Would an Amazon Sword work in the back too to fan out? I might try that smaller sword your recommended to for some mid-level plants.

The Pennywort wiol spread, give it time. With the new light both swords will work.
