Very nice set up! Some more plants and them filling out would really make it look great. The cluster of stem plants on the right look to be Rotala Rotundifolia to me. The big, broad leafed plant in the center looks like some variety of Anubias. How do you do the DIY co2 system? What all do you need? I am using Flourite substrate, T-5 HO light fixture, and am having to dose every other day with a liquid co2 (Excel). I also dose with Flourish 1x a week for my fertilizer, as well as using root tabs (for my plants that are heavy root feeders). Would like to do away with dosing with excel every other day, but the co2 systems are so expensive!! Here is a pic of my tank (just planted the tank 3 weeks ago and this pic is after week 2).
