Yep, just wait a few more months. You can also take a peek at the night life. Use a red lens over a flashlight and you will really be surprised!

If you can, wait till about 1-2 hours after lights out. I bought a little cheepy red lens flashlight at wal-mart, for like $15 or so.
Oh, not sure if they have wal-mart north of the friendliest border in the world.

There are walmarts in Canada hehe. Are you kidding, walmart is everywhere!

I agree with Scott though, wait a few months until your tank matures and all the stuff that is too small to see now will start growing and you'll be amazed. I have (had) stuff popping up in my tank years after I set it up.
