TADA!!! Phantom has a planted tank!

Let me say I am learning a lot from this experience. Lesson #1 - it's easier to fiddle with the plants if there are no critters in the tank. Lesson #2 - don't put Duckweed in first. *sigh* Lesson #3 - Get everything ready before you go tearing into the plant baggies all excited. I bought fishing line to tie down some plants and in the excitment I can't find it :( So I used thread and I hope the stuff roots before it disolves. But I did get the plants more of less where I want them even though it's a bit messy and there are a lot of little bits floating all over LOL. Will post the before (2 real plants all the rest fake) and the after :)

BTW when the plants are attached to a rock, can you bury the rock?
