My 20g planted community

Here are a couple pictures of my new 20g long planted community tank. I just set her up about 3 weeks ago. Still wanna get another plant or so, and currently only have 5 red-finned tetras to help with the cycle. I will post more pictures as it progresses. Enjoy...



best shot I could get of whole tank



and here are the current occupants

Thanks for looking, and check back in a few weeks.

It looks great! Makes me want to do a tank with white sand. The white sand really looks nice with the black background & green contrast of the plants. What type of plant is that in the far back left corner? What are you using for ferts?

I dont know what I am going to be stocking it with yet. The only fish I am really interested in at the moment are a couple of zebra botia. Of course some otos and SAEs for the algae. Any recommendations? I dont really want any mollies cause they poop way to much!

I actually cant remember what the plant in the back left hand corner is, but I wanted to take a look when I go down the the shop again (Ill get back to you on it). as far as ferts, I am using some root tabs and flourish liquid right now (to get it started). I am going to order some online next paycheck.
