Newly Planted 5 gallon! [pictures!]

So, after an almost lethal mistake, my 5gal has finally been converted to a (heavily!) planted tank.


Before and after for comparison! The before picture was taken back in November, I think. The tank was mostly anacharis, with a little wisteria and hornwort in there and maybe some duckweed. Also, the sword looking plant was fake.



^ Better views of the left and right sides, respectively.

Updated Substrate: Miracle Gro Organic Choice POTTING MIX! capped with CaribSea Floramax in 'Midnight'
Updated Flora: duckweed, salvinia minima, amazon frogbit, hornwort, anacharis, narrow leaf anacharis, a single stem of ludwigia, wisteria, water sprite, bacopa caroliniana, bacopa monnieri, dwarf saggitaria, (a little) guppy grass, giant hygro, compact amazon sword, java fern and two marimo moss balls


After what happened last time, I'm too paranoid to add my betta and snails (one mystery & then a collection of about 10 trumpet, ramshorn and pond snails) into the tank right now, but I'm planning on adding them in no later than Sunday assuming everything does well. Until then, everyone's hanging out in their QT one gallons. Can't wait to put them in, though!

Thank you! I think I might have actually overdone it on the plants, haha. Once they start growing, I'm probably gonna have to buy another tank. Not that that's an issue with me or anything. ;D
