Either way, their both good in my book.
Duckweed's awesome... Until you want to remove it, haha, it's almost impossible! I did love mine until I decided I didn't want it anymore. :P It was an excellent nutrient sponge and grew like wildfire, but the frogbit's growing at about the same pace and is far easier to pluck out if it overruns the place. XD

I think I may send Olympia's goldies some of my duckweed xD
They'll love me for the awesome snack.

I love your tank. The decorations you chose are some of my favorites too!

It's a 10 gallon with Petco sand substrate and I'm working on making it heavily planted. Here it is currently; the small swords in the middle and foreground will be replaced.

I honestly like the overgrown/untrimmed look. I just think it looks more natural. It's a hard look to get, though, if you don't have live plants and you try too hard to make it look all organized and whatnot (even though I also have yet to see a planted tank I did not like, so I guess that's a little irrelevant, lol).

I got my live plants in the mail last Thursday :) they are in QT containers and will be staying there until I get the rest of my girls and get them QTed, too. I'm really hoping I can keep them alive. So far, the anubias and java moss are the only two that look perfect and my hornwort turned into a pile of mush while it was being shipped :(

Thank you motherpeters. My goal has always been to have a jungle look and I thought these pieces would fit in nicely.

Aokashi: I'd say your tank is trimmed nicely to still be overgrown and easily viewable at the same time.

Here is an updated shot of my 20cm 'paludarium' cube.







Mum wants to make a feature of this when I convert it over to a 60-F tank. Going to be using seiryu rock as well as the belem hairgrass, staurogyne tropica, HC, native pennywort and glosso I have going over in my emersed tank. It will also house my remaining killifish female.
