Bounce! I'm impressed at how full and bright green those crypts are! Can I steal one of your green thumbs?

Haha yeah..I'll probably save the root tabs for something down the road..since I can't find the receipt to return them XD. But I've got fertilizer so no problems, there I was just kinda hopin I'd be able to use the root tabs since I have them but oh well.

And my light is fairly decent I say since I am using my desk light during the day and such...but yeah hopefully in 2 weeks I can get rid of the unsightly dental floss XD

I think the wendtii stays pretty small...I heard they only get to about 4" or so. Mine are about that tall now and not really doing anything. They where tiny when I bought em.

Well, that makes me feel better. haha They're probably about 3" now. I thought they were stunted in some way. They came from Petsmart in those packages that are hanging up above the plants they sell in tubes. Like I said, I never give them root tabs because I would really just as soon they stayed smaller because they're just in a 10 gal. tank.

These are some of the same plants that I bought previously to buying the ones for my betta tank. They're a little older. The clump in the middle is from the package I put in the betta tank. You can see the difference in how much bigger the older ones are. But, I do give them root tabs and just recently moved the smaller clump into this tank.

I'm impressed with how thick and bushy they are! Mine are generally much thinner.

Looks gorgeous. Don't you want lower plants in the front and taller in the back ?
I think it is lovely.

it's very pretty! unfortunately the two plants to the right are non aquatice. to achieve a similar look you can replace them with vals and a larger variety of crypts

Really? I was told they were stupid petco employees they were rather expensive. They were labeled as aquatic.
