First planted tank

I have just got rid of my last plastic plant and love the look of the real plants already, along with my new wood. What do you think so far?

Looks very lively. I'm debating on putting live plants in my 29g. I've got rocks laying in it w/o water yet. Sand and live look so much better. Good job!

I like it also, it looks clean. A few tips would be to put that heater parallel with the sand in the back so that the driftwood/rockwork hides it.

Also, it looks like the tank has a pink bulb in it, a full spectrum white bulb would make a world of difference in the general tint of the tank if you ever want to change it.

And finally, get more plants, fill it in, it's looking fantastic already but will look even better when it gets filled in.

I agree i need some more foliage. I was told i had to have the heater as it is. I would rather hide it though. Im thinking of a blue backgroud too.

The bulb is pinkish. I only brought this one as being a novice it said plant on the box. I do prefer white though

I use 2 coralife 50/50 10 watts for my tank. The 50/50 I believe means one of the tubes is white while the other tube on the same fixture is blue, giving it the tint that I
like.

This is a tank that started over the weekend that I plan on turning into a jungle.
