So I redid Alejandro's tank and decided to make it into a planted tank. I'm liking the way it looks now, better than before. I'm letting it run for a couple days before I put him in because I did a really thorough cleaning, and the substrate made the water a little cloudy.
The plants include amazon swords, java ferns, wisteria, and some HC up front. I should've seperated the HC into smaller clumps, but I'm not really going to be too heartbroken if it doesn't carpet properly.
