Had to strip down and re wash the sand. It is clearer now. got a filter squeeze off my nephew and bought some cardinal tetra. More plants to be added Friday, when they lfs has them in.
The plants I have at the moment are,
3 Anubias congensis
3 Echinodorus ozelot green
2 Pogostemon helferi, this has been split and spread over the substrate.
As I said I have 5 Cardinal tetra, that will be increased to 15/20 and a couple of either apisto's or kribs.

thanks Sparky,
Going to set up a Co2 system (homemade) on Friday. fill the tank with plants and take more pics then. The cloudiness will start clearing as well with further water changes.

the tank is 91cm x 48cm x 35cm approx 100ltr.
You are moving to start a family , A family of fish tanks. :)
This is a down size for me. I did have larger tanks but sadly had to let them go. Thankfully that is only temporary, I will be having a 350ltr corner tank in the next few months.

Looking good.
What have you got on the electrical cords to stop water running down the cord and into the multi-outlet? You either need to raise it higher, or have a loop in the cord to stop water running down the length. At least you don't have to worry about earthquakes sloshing water over the end and drowning the electrics! Water and electricity don't mix!

Thanks Neet. Cant wait to get the apisto's in there, but that is months away. Just have to sit on my hands and not be to impatient. A few cardinals will look nice though.
