Not what I would call heavily planted But I will be adding anubias+wisteria+more sruface plants soon :) Right now I have 2 java ferns, Hygrophelia (sprouts a new set of leaves every week).

The whole tank:


Closeup of the hygrophelia plant:


Surface plants (pothos + arrowhead) latelely they have been sprouting alot of roots. Plus these plants have "the arial advantage". Easier acess to co2 = faster growth = good ammonia + nitrate removers.

I don't know that I'd necessarily call it heavily planted but this is my 7 gallon beta tank.

That's a Cryptocoryne Wendtii Red. For me at least it's been a fairly fast growing plant.

My boring ol' tank with the gals!



I have Corkscrew val, Amazon Sword, Hygrophila, some type of Echinodoris, Java Fern, and a stray thing or Moneywort which I took out. Also up top I have a bit of Duckweed (I did a big fat cleanout.. it's coming back quick!)

That hygrophila is HUGE. I bought mine at petco. It came in a tube labelled as compacta. Is that the one you have? mine is still small, only 6 inches high but all the stems have sprouted new leaves. Each bigger than the last. Do you do anything special for yours? fertilizers, root tabs, co2, etc?

Not sure its heavily planted but they fill it nicely. Its Java Ferns, Amazon Sword and Anubias. Also the spiral grass in the middle but I forgot the name of it.
