Tank rescape
 
Did a tank rescape today, changed out the gravel for a mix of play sand and pool filter sand, added some more live plants and rearranged the rock decorations. Must be the fish like it a lot as one of the soulosi is now holding eggs!

Looking good so far, do you plan to add more plants? Also what kind do you have now?

I know 2 of the plants are moneywort but other than that I have no idea other than they are lower light plants. Plan on adding a sword plant of some sort in the future just have to travel to a bigger store, the lfs doesn't have tons of live plants as is it more of a saltwater focused store atm.( it's only been open for 6 months or so and we haven't had one for a few years before this one)

Gonna let these plants grow out a little then decide what else to get, kinda new to the whole live plant thing in an aquarium but I figured if I can grow a garden these can't be much harder!

I'm working on my first planted tank aswell, it's a little hard at first, but you get the hang of it you don't wanna stop.
