Your plants look good.
Is that with or without co2?

Are you still going to work on the sun-lit tank you were talking about earlier?

BTW the tank looks amazing! Great work!

What are you planning on putting in the 20? Or is it going to be just plants? Maybe a few fry to add some interest?

That is a nice cheap way to get plants..... I have two friends that own LFSs and I get their cast offs.
