So my anubias and amazon sword are doing well, and my java fern's thriving... though it's done something weird. I don't understand what it's doing. Leafception?

That is normal, it is how they spread. It sprouts baby leaves and roots from the little brown nodules on the underside of the parent leaves, which will eventually break away.

I always find this thread with these beautiful planted tanks both inspiring and jealousy inducing!

Lol well, I'm pretty frustrated with it (and lots of other things ) right now. There is no new growth and the majority if the plants are melting, especially the wisteria and hygrophila 'siamensis'... They better perk up, plants are expensive!

Recently did a huge cleaning and replaced the gravel with sand. So beautiful! I am so happy with it.

Anacharis
Anubias
Water wisteria
Java fern
Amazon swords, that may or may not be dying...
Java moss, tied down and a clump floating
Frogbit
Riccie flutans
Dwarf water lettuce
And one tiny, adorable moss ball!

And I STILL want more plants! Hahaha.

I just changed my 5.5 gallon over from sand substrate to soil and more planted...I haven't added livestock yet, I feel like something's not right yet. I don't know. It seems so crowded, but I guess it's not, right? It just seems that way because the plants take up a lot of the open swimming room he had before? And one of the swords I bought is already too tall, the leaves are out of the water. Is that ok, or should I move it to a larger tank?

Currently in there: 2 anubias, one melon sword, one rubin sword, anacharis, micro sword, Brazilian penny wort, water sprite, cabomba, java moss and a small moss ball. Did I overdo it? Plants were cheap, and I already had the anacharis and cabomba, it was growing like a weed so I propagated it from the other tank, and I still have a big pile I didn't plant/place yet. One stem of cabomba I pulled out was literally 4 feet long.
