Hey everyone!

It's been a while since I've posted here. When I first started out it was a sad display of fish keeping. I have matured a bit with my fish keeping abilities and have had a stable 20G going now for over a year. I have decided to post some pictures and ask for some feedback. I have a few questions as well. First off, my equipment.

Hardware:
20G Tank
Marineland c220 canister filter
Fluval 150W heater
Fluval g88 pressurized co2 kit

Lifestock:
10 Neon Tetras
4 Corys

Plants:
2 Amazon swords
1 Java fern (that has branched out quite a bit to new growth)
Approx' 8 Vales (I think)

Any suggestions or feedback on what I have so far? Things I should do that would be cool, ideas, etc? Also I was thinking about adding more livestock, maybe fish - any ideas there?

Thanks for stopping by!IMG_20130110_174119_435[1].jpgIMG_20130110_173544_946[1].jpgIMG_20130109_145808_350[1].jpg

Monstrous Swords!!!! Very nice!! I can't tell if those are Val's or Sag.

Maybe a pair of Dwarf Cichlids - there are many nices ones to chose from: Apisto's, Kribs, Rams, laetacara Curviceps or laetacara dorsigera

Thanks for the comments guys :). The driftwood is pretty sweet, the way it sits in the aquarium it creates a nice cave underneath it and the corys love it under there. I used to have 6 swords in there and it was ridiculous, they all got so big. So I pulled 4 of them out and gave them to a co-worker who was interested in starting to do plants in his tank. I will post a few more pictures later today when my lights kick on - they are on from about 1PM to 9PM CST.

You could add another peice of wood or some rocks to form some caves and crevices or a half of a coconut shell with some type of moss attached to it
