@Fishybitty Did you keep your bacopa bunched or did you plant the individual stems? I planted them bunched and I notice the bottom leaves dying off a little. Makes sense since it's such close quarters in a bunch.

plants often lose their bottom leaves because there isnt enough light :)

@aokashi. For your stem plants did you plant separately? Should I just leave the system alone and let it just growth and do it's thing? Kind of a semi-neat freak. :/

I left mine bunched, I bought them in a little package at Petsmart bunched. I figured why not!

haha! the. guppy grass is definitely not your thing!
unfortunately bacopa isn't the hardiest plant in the world :O
I recommend planting some dwarf sags in the foreground...these usually grow just tall enough to hide the uglies in the background :3

plant C

The plant C that you mentioned.. if it isn't a bacopa might be creeping jenny. I have some in my 29 but I found this picture on the internet from another forum and it's faster than if I took a picture of mine

Betta came in today and CO2 diffusor the day before. Finally have the tank set up like how I want it to be. It's amazing how quickly these plants grow with Seachem Excel. I had to move my wisteria to the back/side since it was as if it was growing on steroids! Anyway, pictures to share! Thanks for the support/feedback everyone! Looking forward to see what goes on.

Quick question though, my betta seems out competed for food by the tetras which move very fast. Anyone keep a community tank and have any suggestions? Thanks beforehand!

Hey everyone. Finally got my diffuser and new lighting and most of the plants have taken off! Excited to see what happens in a few months.

Quick question, would anyone happen to know what the plant in the front left is? It's the reddish green plant. For some reason, I don't think it's fairing too well since the leaves have started to droop and curl in at the edges. Would it happened to be a red rubin sword (should have asked the LFS beforehand) and what could be a good remedy?

Thanks in advance! Will post pictures soon.
