Talking fist planted tank!!!!

This is my first fully planted tank set up late last night. Spent over $100 on plants.
The tank is a standard 20g. Substrate is black tahitian moon sand. Plants are: 2amazon swords, 1 rubra val split into 2, 3 bacopa australis, 3 hygro corymbosa, 1 ambulia, 2sunset hygro, 2 hygro angustifolia. I'd still like to add jungle val, and some foreground plants but I think this is a pretty good start!

That looks amazing! What does that sand cost? I'm planning my first planted tank and I've decided on black sand :D

Probably for it being a "noxious weed" like asian ambulia lol.

The tank looks wonderful. I would add a background to the tank to close it in and make it look "fuller". What are you putting in the tank? Also, I LOVE the black sand, wanted black sand but cannot afford it :<

The background is a good idea. What do you suggest? Its going to be a guppy and platy tank. All girls. No boys allowed!
