Great tanks, everyone! Cinderwolf, your palnts look nice and healthy. LBF - I'm so envious of your barracks and fish room.

I got my first plants for my 10 gal today. They are 3 of the $2 moss balls from ebay. WHo knew that they'd float after being shipped without water!

they are MUCH smaller than they look. LOL. The biggest was 2.5cm on its shortest length, but the other two are 2.5cm on their longest lengths. Think... cherry tomato, not ping pong ball. But they're healthy and will be fine, once they sink!

Great job, Cinderwolf! It looks lovely, I really like the layout.

Knitterly, your floating moss balls made me giggle. I can imagine the fish: ???wth???

My moss balls were very tiny when I got them. A couple of months later, they got twice the size or more. I can squeeze them back to original size and they blow up again a few moments later ;)

giggle... the fish arent in there yet, but I'd find it awfully confusing if the bushes started floating!
