LW's Planted Tanks

I always liked the idea of a planted tank, so I'm trying to do all of my big setups as such. So far I've only got two big tanks planted, but I'll have at least one more (probably two are three more). One of them I've changed around a lot, the other is only recently setup. Anyway... here are my tanks!

The long one is my CT's 6.6 gallon - changed many times. Added and removed various plants. The other is my king's 10 gallon. Might change the 10 gallon eventually, and if I do, I'll post it here (will also post when the lily gets bigger, like I did with the 6.6)

Not in any specific order, as much as I wish they were XD

Thanks :D I can't wait until they grow out more and look more natural, especially the dwarf hair grass in the 10 gallon.

We had two Amazon Sword Plants in our guppy tank but the plants
weren't doing well, so I moved them to my bettas tank. And to ask
are you using a Co2 bubbler.

I am not. But I do add API CO2 Booster every few days (not as often as recommended, but often enough it seems). Most of the older Amazon Sword leaves melted, but I know that's common. They've shown a lot of new growth in terms of leaves, so I'm not worried about them. Only plant I have trouble with is my Wisteria - which I've only recently discovered enjoys cold moving water. The exact opposite of the tank it was in XD So, now its in my 10 gallon, which is a tad cooler, and has a stronger filter/current.

Perseusmom: There's some real wood in there, but the light brown is not XD Its a decoration from Petco. The dark wood on the left is real, and there's some hiding in the back on the right.

dramaqueen: Most of my plants are actually tubed or the bulbs - so I've had no problems yet! Knock on wood!

I heard that the kind in tubes were usually creepy crawly free.
