Yes it is current. The tank and plants have been running over a year. There is a dozen stem plants of an unknown species as well as 3 bunches of crypt. The stem plants have been recently trimmed and are starting to branch already and they were trimmed less than 2 weeks ago!

I consider a tank heavily planted if you can't see the fish through the plants.....

So do I, but I guess there's the visual and the functional side of it. Visually it might not look heavily planted, but as long as they are sucking up waste it might be.

I consider it heavily planted as it sucks up all wastes. How about instead of "heavily planted" is say "healthily planted" to avoid confusion lol

Since you are just beginning, I would not necesarrily reccomend nano-fish as mentioned above. I would highly reccomend the humble betta. They are probably the most popular beginner fish and are often fairly hardy. Just make sure your aquarium is cycled and you will be in good shape.
