First planted tank, 3 months in.

Hello everybody,
I just wanted to check in an show some before and after photos of my 10 gallon planted tank. I wanted to thank anyone who chimed in with advice during the stressful first couple weeks. I'm pretty pumped on this thing. So far, so good.Click image for larger version

Looks great...! All I could think looking at that driftwood is how fast my Amano Shrimp would be exploring the house.

You're lucky.... one of my Amanos climbed up a cord for a bacteria buster, out of the tank, got 50 feet from the tank, got swatted by my dog's paw (she was thinking it was a bug.) I thought it was a bug too...! My 6yo son was savvy enough to recognize it as a shrimp and I threw it back in the tank.... That was a month ago. He is still alive and kicking today.

Did a great job on the layout of the tank. The larger stones really bring the tank together I think
