None of the plants in my little emersed set-up seem to be dying yet.






I have no idea what this moss is but I stuck it on the rock to see if it won't grow.

Aokashi you must be Queen of random plant filled jars haha.

Hahaha This tank used to look much better. it might e time to give the sags a trim... and actually plant that half floating one.

just added some more plants to my 26, gonna change the substrate on sunday (hopefully) so this isnt a permanent thing)
Just got all the crypts in the tank. Still have a bunch of stems to try and find a place for....they are sitting in a breeder net till I get home tomorrow to try and figure it all out.

Honestly, I'm not sure that I should have planted the crypts today or if I should have just waited until sunday when I changed substrate...
Oh well, too late now!

Thoughts? Should I change anything when I change substrate??
The tall plants in the back are vallisneria gigantea (tape) and crypt balansae thinking about moving the val to the left and moving the amazon swords into the middle of the back...

Here is my 5g cube NPT that I planted on Wednesday (pictures are from that day). It currently just has 3 Assassin Snails and I am looking to get another Betta, but haven't quite found the one I really want yet (only getting one, so it needs to be "the one"!). It is now Saturday and its doing well...about to do my first water change on it (even though the water is pretty clear already).

5g cube NPT with 3 Assassin Snails & soon a Betta

The way you planted this makes it look so much larger than a 5! Nice job! It looks great!
