New build

Hey everyone! Just moved at got my new tank setup and figured I would share it with all of you! It is a 29 gallon long tank with a penguin 150 filter. Currently running two lights simply for aesthetics but only use one to grow the plants! The terrain is made of black gravel/sand and large lava rock! Then I added a piece of driftwood for a tunnel effect. Plants I have currently are wisteria, Anubis, sword, and Marimo balls! Fish include: 3 black Mollyís, 1 granite Molly, 8 neon tetras, and a few molly babies!! Plus a few nerite snails and 3 cherry shrimp! Curious to what other fish you think would look good in my tank!? Also any tips or advice for more plants! Click image for larger version

Here are my water test kit samples! Ammonia is a little high due to replacing the filter pads but other than that it looks good!Click image for larger version

Very nice set up. Looks like you could easily attach more Anubias or java fern on your driftwood. As for fish, a small grouping of dwarf ram cichlids would likely do well.
