Thanks everyone! I'm really pleased that others like the tank. :)

willow - Yes it seems when the water is up high enough, the water flows straight into the tank from the filter and doesn't create a waterfall, which helps lower the current a lot.

kateyoup- Yes, I plan to get a background. I'm thinking of getting a shower curtain and trimming it to the right size if I can find a good design!

Fancying the fish world!

The background will definitely be on the outside. Much easier!

Well, there wasn't a very good selection of shower curtains that would fit a freshwater aquarium, although there were a couple of good saltwater scenes. So instead I just bought a pre-made aquarium background. I also got some better lights with more lumen output, and picked up some Flourish Tabs and stuck them in the substrate for the plants. Now all that's left is adding a DIY pvc pipe tunnel that is soaking, let the tank finish cycling, and add the rest of the fish!

The Ludwegia, looks like you stuck a bunch of it in the sand with all the stems together. I'll do better if you re-plant it with the stems about a half inch to an inch apart. Ditto on the Frill.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

Thanks for the comments and advice.
I added the pvc pipe tunnel. It turned out alright - there was a bigger one I made too but it would have taken up too much room. Still cycling. :)
