So, after all the changes that my tank has gone through in the past 6 months - I thought I would create a bit of a "show off" / "ask for suggestions" thread for people to see how I've managed to incorporate live plants into a tank that was already established as a "fake plant" tank.
So first, a rundown of the vital stats:
26 Gallon Bowfront Tank (Aqueon)
-- Fluval 205 Canister filter.
-- Fluval M 100w Heater.
-- Marineland "Double-bright" LED
platform (18"-24" version).
-- Gravel Substrate
-- AquariumPlants.net Tabs Fertilizer
-- No CO2
-- Vallisneria (Corkscrew)
-- Java Fern
-- Java Moss
-- Anubias Nana
-- Hygrophila Difformis (wisteria)
-- 6 Black Neon Tetras
-- 6 Zebra Danios
-- 2 German Blue Rams
-- 1 L033 King Tiger Pleco
-- 1 Garra Flavatra "Panda Garra"
So, if anyone has any suggestions of things to do differently with this tank - let me hear it. I'm always looking to improve.
Now for the pictures:

Very Nice shot of the Hygro, this stuff grows very nice under these lights and glows such a great green:
GBRs and their Hut, Java Fern growing on the roof and Vals growing in the back:
