I think it's my light. The lid still needs to be cut to fit on properly so some parts are getting better light then others. Hopefully soon I can get it cut. Also I noticed my moneywort was not doing well floating. So I removed the dead gooey leaves and put the healthy plants in the gravel but not tied in bunches. I will see how this goes. Also I bought a new light for my 5 gal tank. I am hoping this one works. I guess we will see. ;)

Thank you twolovers101! I have worked on it for weeks. Yeah the anacharis is growing like crazy. I see a lot of new stems growing. Unfortunately my hornwort is kinda looking sad. :( Hopefully I can revive it a bit. *fingers crossed*

Thanks ChoclateBetta! I was def going for a more natural feel.

What do you all think of me adding these decorations to the tank? A bridge on either side of this Asian Temple Entrance in the middle?

The Asian temple is a great idea bettas are from asia the bridges would provide a great hiding spot.

Thanks ChoclateBetta! I was looking for a decor that would not take away from all the plants. I thought this would compliment everything nicely and like you said the bridges can be good hiding spots for Babe *my betta*. :) The best part is they are on sale too! Woo-hoo! :)

Yay! I'm gonna order all three tomorrow. So hopefully my tank will be completed. Then again I might find something to tweak, lol!

A fake tree and lave rock are other suggestions.
