It looks empty ! LOL. Add some more stuff in there ;) I like it, but the fish are probably bored...
Check your params as well just in case, wanna make sure the seeding was enough.

awesome! those little fish make that tank look humongous! (i have a 29 too and boy does it look smaller than that!). I LOVE the pleco. LOVE IT! And +1 on Angel's advice, I'll always advocate a planted tank for the fish. Even if you just stick a few amazon swords in there with some fertilizer tabs. Believe me, my fish love my plants. and if you ask me how I know I'll tell you, but just trust me.

look forward to watching the tank grow.

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.
