Congratulations on your first planted tank! It gets more and more exciting as you go. I like the piece of driftwood.

Tank seems to be cycling now, but I'm away on holiday so can't maintain the ammonia addition. Was thinking about putting in a decent size group of Amano shrimp to at least keep some bioload. Would like to add my tetras too, but that means 4 days unattended.

Looks good and natural. The hardest thing about having a planted tank is letting it grow in! You always want to make little changes here and there haha. Your fish are going to love it! Good Job!
