I was wondering what this section was..

Your tank is nice, what plant is the one that looks like lettuce?

How long have those plants been growing there?

I thought substrate that large, would be bad for plants?

ZOMG there's a planted tank forum!!!!!!!!!!!
omgomgomgomgomgomgomg
:O
awessssoommmmeeeeee!!!!
sorry... I had to vent my excitement somewhere...

I had a fish called shiro too! cept she passed recently D: what is that ground cover that you have?
I love your anubias!
can you post a plant stocking list for us?

I also agree that the gravel should be finer :D but all the green leafiness looks lovely :D
If there is a singular giant centerpiece plant, that will look even betterXd

Your betta looks like he's really enjoying his planted home. What kind of plants are in the tank?

Hey guys! Thanks so much for the compliments!!
I'm not 100% positive what all I have in there, but here's what I think:)
3-4 Red Ludwigia, 1 anubius, 2 amazon swords, 1 lonely java fern (lol), maybe some Anubias lanceolata, some micro sword, and moneywort?

idk sorry I had like 10 minutes in Petsmart to get everything for that tank.... >.<' I took that picture right when I got the plants established and the fish in :) Only like 2 days haha My first planted tank
