and just Think - all that DWL you see, stemmed from 1 mama plant and 2 babies I got for 2.99 at my lfs. There's some salvinia in there but it's not the stuff that looks like DWL (2 leaf) .. it's leaves in a row but it's soooo slow growing

I could never enjoy those beautiful roots... all my floaters try to root in the substrate!!!

Aurie, are your top 2 pics reversed? That 5 gallon looks massive! Awesome though.

Newly planted and awaiting more plants that are being shipped to me this week, but I'm excited about it so far!

Are you looking for some art of your betta? I do digital drawings for $5-10! Click here to see some examples.

they're not reversed.
the trick is to put small plants in small tanks ^___^ gives an illusion of having more room
compare the 5g floaters to the 29g floater :)

yeah.. the illusion is that the top picture the tank is the whole picture, the 2nd is that I'm standing away from it. The swords on the first picture aren't as big as the second which is a typical amazon, the top one .. I have NO idea the species, but it's obviously related. I'd be better if I could get a picture with my betta in the roots or something, but he likes to hide behind the castle.

He's the one in my avatar (in the 5.5) .. you can see the size of the floaters. These are babies, the mamas get much longer .. use the thermometer as a base for size I guess...

Also the heater in picture 1 and 3 are the same one. I own 2
