Nice! I love ripariums, there's always something so lush about them.

Yup horwort is a beast like that. Be mindful not to let it loose into waterways (down drain/loo). Just wait for the tiger lotus a few more weeks, leaves will be bigger than your hands!

Just thought I'd post some pics of my 7 gallon cubes as well. They're both fairly new so the plants are still settling in. One has CO2 diffuser in which seems to be working well, so I have another on order for the second tank.

So, tank number one, awaiting fish from Thailand (if it ever arrives!)

Currently has rotala indica, ludwigia arcuata, salvinia minima, duckweed, anubias nanas, java moss, water wisteria.

Tank number two (awaiting CO2 diffuser)

Currently has bacopa monnieri, salvinia minima, duckweed, anubias nanas, java moss, hornwort (in recovery) and... can anyone identify the green spriggy stuff for me? I've been calling it elodea, but I get so mixed up between elodea/anacharis, lol. It grows like a triffid though.

The brown java moss at the back was salt-dipped. Ugh, never again. It's recovering quicker now in the CO2 tank, which is the main reason I'm getting one for the other tank. Otherwise I'm going to have to pull it and maybe replace with some crypts in the substrate.

It didn't just shed. It flat out melted away. Never gave new growth.

My tank is not nearly as lush as all your beautiful tanks but I do have a few plants in mine. I have a 2.5 gallon on my desk at work. I'm battling a bit of algae because my desk is right next to the window. I took a few plant clipping from my tank at home to help compete a few weeks ago. Hopefully in time they will be much fuller :).
