My Planted Fluval Spec V

Don't you love awesome camera phone pictures?

I finally got the planting done in my Spec V last night. I'd been putting it off until I had a couple of hours to spare.

Equipment:
Fluval Spec V
Stock (modified) filter
Stock lighting
Hydor 50W submersible heater (in pump chamber)

Flora:
Purple Cabomba
Marsilea Minutia
Hydrocotyle Japan
Flame, fissidens, and peacock moss
"Dwarf" sag
hygrophila bold
1 weepy little crypt
ludiwigia repens x l acurta
rotala green
Anubias petite
rotala r.

Fauna:
None, unless you count the snail eggs I missed.

I'll take a couple of pictures with a real camera later - I should hopefully be picking up some RCS and PFRs today. After they're established and the mosses have grown out some, I'll be adding a Betta.

I'm using Eco-Complete. It's a little hard to plant in unless you drain the tank, but I don't plan on moving anything around.

I would probably use Eco complete if the price wasn't so high. Or atleast high to me, an unemployed tech-school student
