I'm not quite sure if that wallpaper is going to be distracting by not having a background on the aquarium. Perhaps adding some type of semi-transparent opaque white background would look nice? Just a suggestion mate! Something like BillBug did here on AA. Check out his thread on page 3: Bill's 12 Long - A Rimless Iwagumi Build

As for a carpeting plant, I'd go with HC or UG.
Yeah the background idea looks good might look into it, i cant stop looking at the wallpaper now you pointed it out lol might just get the wife put plain wallpaper up but doubt that will happen.

Better quality pics and a pic of my new digital timers with battery backup seemed the best option.

Just a quick question, just tested my water today and I have no nitrites but have nitrates and ammonia is this normal? Never had that happen before! See my pic.

Your water source could have nitrates. That could explain why. Test the water out of the tap, if that's what you're using. I think it's normal, not really a big deal.
