New 20 gal long planted

It has been awhile since I have but up a picture of one of my tanks, so here is the newest addition to my tanks. You my notice that I stole the background idea from Lonewolfblue. Imitation is a form of flattery. the dwarf sag has been donated by Neilanh. Thanks again. It is a 20 gal long, with an AC20 filter. Please give your feedback and help me improve this little tank.

Thanks Again for all the help that people on this site have given me.
You know who you are.

Full tank shot

Looking good Mr. Robertson. I see you have a PH and a huge heater in there. You can hide it by placing the ambulia in front of it, maybe lower the PH a bit. Is that a crypt on the front left?

OMG, that is beautiful!
I can't wait to see how it fills in. What little fishies you got in there?

The tank looks wonderful! I really like the LWB type background.

The hardscape is very pleasing.

Cool!

Is it cycled? what fish do you have/are you going to get?

The plant in the left front is one of three Ozelot Swords that the Manager at the local Petsmart gave me. He was hoping that I could bring them back. I am seeing new growth on all three of them now.

The moss looks like it might be tied on a bit too thickly. You want to use a very thin layer for best results.

Looking forward to seeing how your tank matures.

Looks great! especially the sag - hehe

Seriously, great looking tank, I particularly like your hardscape as well, and you've created a great amount of depth, specifically on the left side of the tank. Awesome job!

Yes it is cycled, right now it just has some feeder guppies in it. I plan on having a small school of Harlequin Rasbora, and of course some Panda Cories to help keep the bottom clean.
