Planted 10 gallon

I just wanted to post some pics of my ten gallon planted tank. I think I am going to add one more fern in the back where there is an empty space. I was also thinking of adding some moss. Will it grow on my artifical log, or is there anything like that. Your thoughts, suggestions and comments are welcome.

Thanks for the tip on the moss. I can name every plant in there except the ones in the front. I got them at Petsmart in a small bag. They were a lot smaller when I got them but have really took of since I planted them. Next time I am up there i will see what kind of plant they are. The two in the front on the far right and left are Anubis.

Wanted to show the difference lighting can make. The orginal pictures from November have the stock bulb lighting. I upgraded to a T8 single fluorescent light. I like the new look compared to the old bulb look. I also got a Hagan CO2 system that I use in the tank now. Makes a big difference. I am still not sure what kind of plants are in front of my log. The closest thing I can match it to is some sort of sagittaria.

Your tank is nice! By any chance do you know the Kelvin of your T-8 fluorescent light? Also the length of it? Thanks!

If your original light hood was the screw in bulb type you could have gotten compact fluorescents and improved your lighting even better than the single bulb fluorescent.

What kind is where I get stumped, but the screw in bulb hood on most of the hoods out there are 15 watt max per socket. Having two sockets one could have 30 watts of fluorescent lighting as opposed to the single fluorescent t8 bulb. This idea works best on five and ten gallon because of the cfls penetration.
