Pictures of my tank after 72 hours of total darkness

Here are a couple of pictures of my tank, I recently just finished a blackout due to cyanobacteria. The blackout completely worked, so now i'm satisfying my need to show off my set There are more pictures under my aquarium tab. I was looking at my tank one month ago vs last night, and my plants are soooo much bigger. I added a black background to the tank as well, some advice i got on here. I'm absolutely crazy about my tank since i switched to live plants 2 months ago!!!!Thanks for all the help everyone.
