my new aquarium a Juwel Rio 125, part 2

Last night I installed the Eheim in the cabinet. I put a lot of foam around it to dampen the noise even further. Hooked up the spraybar and filled it up to the recommended level.

I was quite surprised at the flow I get from this little Eheim. My tank is pretty much at the upper limit of what that filter is supposed to be able to handle but it still looks good.

I also planted some shabby echinodorus tenellus I saved from my 1 gallon experiment, hope it will recover. Next step is plant shopping, I want to get a medium sized echinodorus for the left area and something tall to cover the filter intake on the right.
