I would have a moss ball or two in there, but I've got them in my non-cycled 3 gallons in an attempt to keep nitrogen levels steady for longer than they would otherwise. They'll eventually go into the aforementioned tank, but not until I get my other boys into cycled tanks with no algae XD

These tanks are so, so pretty. I like the way they are now, but look forward to them filling out too. Nice choices of wood and plants. :)

Thanks! :D I can't wait for them to take on a more natural look, but I really think I need a ground cover plant for Sonas' tank, now that I've rearranged it. Again XD The mid and upper level is plenty busy, but the gravel looks so barren.

My newest planted tank, for Féileacán (who you can see floating in his cup). Instead of waiting weeks for it to cycle, I'm going to do an in fish with this one. I am, however, seeding it with the filter material from Sonas' tank (I've got both filter cartridges in that filter currently, so it can build up on the new one). Its not even CLOSE to being done. There's a number of silk plants in there, just to fill in the gaps. So far I've got:
Amazon Sword
Anubias
Microsword
Frill, one stem
Java Moss, I think (which I got for free :D)

At some point in time, I might add more frill, maybe an aponogeton, and maybe a banana plant.

Its been quite a while since I've posted an updates here. I've lost a few fish, but also gained a few more friends. I've currently got three stocked tanks (but no pictures of the third), all of them with live plants. One has more silk plants than live, as I've been struggling with algae.

I really like your last tank! What's on the bottom left? I'm really looking forward to setting up my 6.6 in the future, for now I only have a 5 and am getting really tired of it's now lidded-ness. Being broke is no help, though. I have a really great plan in mind for it, and I want side a lot like what you have on the bottom.

Gorgeous fish and tanks! :P

Well, for the bottom left of the bottom tank... there's a few half-dead amazon swords that are trying to adjust to the tank change, and an aponogeton farther back. Those are about those only two things I can think of in that area of the tank! If you mean the top tank, its a marimo moss ball.

I have an extra 6.6 gallon I'm willing to sell if you'd like. I'm getting out of bettas once my last three boys pass on (which will probably be a few years), and I don't have much use for a tank that small anymore. They're normally about $50, but I'd let mine go for $15+shipping. Everything still works fine, and the filter medium is in good shape, so it should last a while yet. Unless, of course, you've already got one XD Then I'll just put it up on craigslist eventually.

Your tanks are beautiful ! not only because of the plants; the wood and rocks are dramatically positioned, very impressive !

Thank you very much, deesseau! A lot of my placement ideas come from various tanks owned by members here, so I can't take all the credit for it.

I should have specified, but I meant the log/rock thing rather than the plants? What is that/where did you get it? :)
