Here's my planted, it's gravel based and has been running for 4 months. It's nothing compared to some of the amazing tanks you guys have but I don't have an aquatic plant dealer anywhere near me so I just propagate the ones I have. The water level looks lower than it is.

Ooooh, such pretty tanks everyone!!

I've made some alterations to my tanks... Removed a large portion of hardscape from each one, added some stones, and tried to arrange it so I can fit quite a few more stems into each, and hopefully some mid/foreground plants if they end up receiving enough light. Hooray! They look a little empty after doing that, because I tried arranging everything so there'd be plenty of room for more stems in the back when they arrive, but there's the same number of plants as before. ^.^





I don't know if it's allowed in this thread, but I wanted to include a mugshot of Weehawk, because he's the only one who would cooperate for photos today. XD

Hey Sparrowhawk, I think I see some floating water wisteria in your tanks, but what are the other floaters? I also have a 5 in need of some floaters to decrease the light to my other plants (algae problem and I'm burning a few of my stems).

That's water sprite floating. ^.^ There's frogbit, duckweed and water sprite as the floaters in all my tanks. Not sure if I'll regret putting duckweed in there, but I do love how much it keeps the water clean.

Cool thanks! I'm going to see if I can get a hold of some water sprite & frogsbit (I will steer clear of the duckweed as I've heard it can be a real pain if you have a HOB filter)
