    Your tank is really filling up nicely. I think it would be nice if you got some kind of carpet down, at least in the front.

    I just ordered some glossostigma for mine, it is lacking a carpet as well.

    Cheers

    No need to carpet, you can put rocks in the substrate for the foreground. Your plants are doing very well! Your tank is quite large. You can include a large school of tetras (16) and some bottom dwelling fish like cories, loaches, etc. I assume you meant "zebra danio" when you said "zebra tetra". Zebras do best with a strong current, but most tetras like calm water. Decide on one or the other and get a large school! I have a recommendation - bloodfin tetras. They have simple colors, but swim together very well.
