Planted Tank Show and Tell!!

Lately I have noticed a lot of people showing off their planted tanks, figured it might be a good idea to have them all in one place.
Also, I am trying to get some ideas for rescaping my 26 bowfront sorority. I'd love to see everyone else's tanks and find out what all you have going on with them!

Current.

Much harder to photograph now that the water lettuce has taken over. In real life it looks so much more amazing.

I personally love the overgrown look, and feel as though they are the best for a sorority (though this contains only a male and some ghost shrimp) as then everyone can find their own space. However, the fish can be hard to find. Even my giant here disappears, and goodness knows I only find the shrimp if I really stir stuff up or put some good food in the tank.

Lovely tanks everybody! ^.^

After a bit of a tweaking with stem placement (I was silly and hadn't thought about where I was going to put the rest of the plants I wanted)

Ze tank that is waiting for its future occupant to be sent to me, hehe:

Also, I have a question for you planted tank enthusiasts... I'd absolutely love some pearl grass in my tanks. I'm not sure what kind of light I have to be honest, whether it's low or medium. I'm running 3 x 6400K LED tubes on each tank, equating to 3.75 watts per gallon... Is that enough light for that? Eep!

That should be more than enough light for them! I think they are moderate to high light plants

They don't look very bright in the pics, do they? I hate taking photos with a high ISO and my camera is not too forgiving... Though I will concede that they're not the brightest tanks in the world, lol. I'd still be happy with leggy small plants in the midground of one or two of 'em. XD Worst that can happen is I waste a few dollars and some time, I suppose. :D

Cheers for the info. XD

EDIT: Oooh ooh I has another question!! One of my bacopa stems has turned pinkish at the top. What does that mean? A deficiency maybe? I don't knowwww! D:

I think it gets red under high light, so it would make sense that it turned red as it grew closer to the light

where did you get your leds from?
