This is your FIRST?! It looks alot better than my first did! ;)

Seriuolsly, though, it looks really good. It needs to grow in some more, but for being only a month old everything looks full and healthy. I like your choice of fish as well. :D

Cool! Your Didiplis diandra and heteranthera zosterifolia look GREAT. I really like Didiplis and it grows great for me. I really like the look of star grass but the trims I got from someone locally a month or two ago just floundered for me and never took off. They looked like crap so I trashed them. :-(

This is a strange hobby. I can grow 3-4 plants classified as "difficult" on the Plantfinder like weeds such as Ludwigia sp. Guinea, Tonina fluvatus, and a couple others but something that supposedly is not that hard like star grass does terrible for me....oh well.

Awesome setup for your first. I wonder how some folks like you are able to make such wonders for a first tank.

It is Ludwigia sp Cuba and right to it is Limnophila Aromatica.
I had some algae and i started to ad macro. The Ludwigia look's like this if i stop the macro fertilization.

Looking good, I think it will look even better once the left side fills in a little more in the back. I feel like a stem or two to blend in the right side with the middle might help.
