you're tanks really pretty,do you know the name of the red plant :)

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

VERY NICE set up!!!!
Just 2 suggestions 1) The Java Fern will thrive better out of the gravel and attached to driftwood 2) turn off the air pump as its driving out your needed CO2 for the plants
