Upgraded my 10 to a 20-long!

I upgraded my 10 gallon to a 20 long yesterday!

I got:

A 20-long black tank
A 30x12 black pine stand (fits like a glove!)
A penguin 170 biowheel filter
A 100 watt heater (rena maybe?)
Black onyx sand for the planted aquarium by Seachem.

It looks great, I am sooo excited!

The inhabitants:
1 female blue gourami
2 corys (gonna pick up 2 more)
1 rubber-lipped pleco
7 neon tetras
4 long-finned leopard danios

Here are progress pics:

Looks good... 20G longs make great plant tanks.

That looks like a nice setup. I like those stands. I've never seen a light fixture like that before.

Oh, I totally forgot to mention about the lights. That is my old pc coralife fixture (it fit my 10 gallon) with "legs" (for like 2 bucks you put the legs on and it doesn't sit as close to the glass). When I was shopping, I couldn't find the right 30" light strip, so I am either gonna have to order one or build one and retrofit it. Looks like my old one is gonna do just fine for the time being though.

That's very pretty! What are the plants, and do you have CO2?
