My new NPT

I finally got everything together and got my first NPT 55g tank planted today.

Step 1 - Fill with Miracle Gro Organic Soil



Step 2 - Place hardscape



Step 3 - Add play sand and some water



Step 4 - Plants then sit back and enjoy

WOW That looks AMAZING! What kind of light fixture is that (if you don't mind me asking)? where did you buy it?

I got the light at Home Depot. I am using 2 48in 32w 6500k T8 bulbs in the fixture. With the 21 inch tall tank it provides a medium/low light level at the substrate.
