Hi!! I completed my planted tank. It is now fully cycled and contains:
2 cory cats
4 pinnoccio shrimp
plants: 2 amazon swords, 2 anubias, some java moss attached to driftwood, a red cryptocoryne and some grasses in the front
I want to be able to add my betta shortly, but we've been on vacation so I wanted to wait until we were back so we could monitor him.
Everything is going swimmingly--the only problems we are having are the diatom algae growing on leaves (shrimps can't seem to keep up with cleaning it fast enough) and some mold/fungus problems with our driftwood.
Thinking about taking the driftwood out to scrape the mold off, but others seems to say it's natural and will go away after a few weeks or months. It's quite unsightly though!
Here's a photo from a couple weeks ago:

Thanks for all the help on building a wonderful tank!
