Are you planning to add more plants? Can you explain how you want your final tank to look like? IT's much better than how I started off.

up close.. it looks pretty much full..

the empty space is between my plants is my focal point :D

and the empty space is where my waterfall filter falls into.. so i cant plant anything tall.. because of the current..

the plants are pretty much an 1nch apart or so.. plus the stones takes space.. waiting for the penny worts? to matt the gravel.. i hope! :shock:

the think is, some of the leaves are turning yellow.. :( man! :twisted:

heres a another pic.. with my stingray pleco..

Yellowing leaves means a lack of Potassium.
Potassium is much needed by plants during initial setup when they are acclimatising to the new environment.
In Takashi Amano's tanks, ADA Brighty K (Potassium and anti-chlorine) is used from the start of any tank before any other ferts are added.

I don't dose K by itself. I'm dosing KNO3 and the K is provided as well, which is usually enough. I think little overdoses of K is harmless as it does not contribute to algae growth as much as N and P.
Just follow the instructions on the bottle of whatever brand you get.
Maybe the other members can give some advice as well.

K is used from the start to the end.
