The tank looks good however I have 1 suggestion. It looks like your water level is right up to your substrate (coco fiber?). If it's saturating the soil your plants can rot from the roots up. I like to keep mine at least 1/4" under that and it works for me. Otherwise it looks great. Gotta love leucs too

BTW, where did you get that vine from? I've been seeing them around lately and can't locate them. I was pretty sure black jungle used to have them but can't find them on the site. Or even if you know what it's known as so I can search around. Thanks.

How much standing water do you have?

Looks like the whole tank has over an inch of water from that second pic.

that pic was taken right after i added the soil and before the frogs were put in so the soil was all bone dry and the water hadnt been absorbed, now the water is much lower then that only about 1/4 inch deep. i got those vines at pecto on clearance for $1 for like a 3 foot long piece and just cut them up but i havent seen them since and that was like 8 months ago.
