Tanks finally finished. For now

Got my cichlids finally in my 55g tank. I still want some more driftwood but thatll have to wqit as money is tight.

Final stock list:
6 pepper cories
8 neon tetras
2 Cryptoheros nanoluteus
2 honduran red point
2 Acarichthys heckelii

So excited the stocking is done, just gonna do some more plants etc. Thx to everyone who helped me from lighting and plants to stocking. Its been much appreciated. Pics to come as soon as I figure out how to get them not upside down in the app.

Your tank looks really good are you going to put a background on or paint the exterior back or leave it clear ?
