Your tank is looking very nice. I am just starting to get into my own live plants. I got a big handful of hornwort given to me and I picked up a used 30g and he through in guppy grass. So I have started anyways. And i have a big bad issue with my local petsmart, so I will not be walking in their door every again.
But on a happy note, My local fish club meeting in dec 11 and they always have a auction after the meeting, so I plan on buying all the plants I can.

with your new fixture, that's a LOT of light... You also have a few difficult plants. Your poor fish are probably being blinded .. (Your fish are "forest fish". In the wild, trees would heavily shade the water.) The t5s alone would be quite (too bright?) bright. If you have any algae problems, the light is to blame.

Keep us updated.
Actually, I had a algae problem. mainly due to overfeeding and long periods of light, now I'm feeding the fishes once at day, and the lights are not running all the time together, T5 from 11:00 to 19:00; and Floramax from 10:00 to 21:00, both controlled by timers.

Terrific photos (nice fish too, but the photos...).

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]

Actually yes, it is, although the 20g long has been easiest, I guess because it is lower.
