Default 20L build

I am currently in the process of building my first tank with a background and real plants. 20L with a GS background. It has taken some effort from me, and I've learned a few things...

1) When placing plant cups in the background, do so more than 2 inches away from the top...
2) When spreading silicone in a new area, be careful of touching the not yet stuck coco fibre on the other areas, as you end up with a big, chunky mess
3) Coco husk takes a LOT longer than coco fibre to completely dry.

So, with that being said, here are the pictures of what I am sure will turn out to be a crappy build (I'm almost embarrassed to put it up here...) but everyone has to start somewhere!!

Plant holder that is going to be almost unusable...

The bare spots are from trying to spread silicone on the next area and will be covered...I am assuming I will use moss to put in those spots to break up the monotony of the background

And these are the plants I have for it

And a pothos and asparagus fern as well. That's it so far!!
