Progress in the last month (picture heavy)

About a month ago I added some plants to my tank which has been set up for about 2 months now. Looking back at the pictures that I took when I first added the plants, to what it going on now, I find it amazing to see the amount of growth. My swords are bigger and looking fuller, they looked so skimpy when I first got them. My wistera is looking more bushy, I actually should probably do some pruning to help shape them some. Along with the fact that I had added some more plants about 2 weeks ago to help fill things in more. I have been using florish comprehensive about once a week, and added some root tabs near the swords when I noticed that holes were developing in some of the leaves. Enjoy and please feel free to comment

Looks great! The plants are coming along nicely. Have you thought about adding a background? It would really give the tank a finished look.

Love your angels, by the way.

135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank

Thanks I've been amazed by the amount of growth in such a short amount of time. Looking forward to what it will look like in another month or two. I have been planning on getting a background, was thinking either black or dark blue, think I am leaning towards the black though. Hopefully pick something up in the next few weeks when I have a little bit of extra $$.

Your tank looks great! I didn't have a background in my tank either and just bought some black poster board and cut it to size until i can get a real background. Other than the poster board not being water-proof, it works great.

Thank you I have also heard of people using black fleece fabric for background. Hoping to get a background for the tank this weekend.
