The endlers are lovely.

If I were you I would fill my tank leaving just a couple of cm's of space to the top or is there a reason it is filled to that level.
I would also buy a background either in blue or black it will help make the colours in your fish pop.

Some of your plants are not aquatic I'm afraid and will rot in your tank causing ammonia spikes.

I do love smaller fish though I'm thinking of going back to a tetra only 20 gallon and I may have to steal your endlers :p

haha thanks :rolleyes: the water level is kinda low as i took those pics yesterday and today was my water change day, so i did not want to fill up the tank but rather wait for today before filling it up after a 10% water change..how do i know which of the plants are aquatic??? i bought all of them from my LFS..thanks :good:

The white and green plant on the right is not aquatic and I dont think the long leafed green plant on the left is aquatic either.

Lfs do sell non aquatic plants as some people use these plants in terrariums, if your lfs know what they are talking about they will let you know which are aquatic and which are not.

The rest look aquatic but they look like they are struggling a bit. some liquid carbn and trace minerals will help them. Are you interested in keeping a planted tank?

what about macro nutrients? (NPK) theyre even more important than traces
