Nice aquariums Btw guys/gals!
I have no idea- I've never actually tried with mine! But it's huge and I've been cutting leaves like crazy lately XD It may work, but I can't guaranty it. Though cutting off dead branches in a good idea.

Just kidding; I think your tanks look great considering the dimensions that you're working with, especially that last pic of yours When I had a 45g tank, I could not get it to look decent for the life of me. It became much easier when I upgraded to a 90g which has a really easy footprint to manipulate and plenty of space to pretty much do what I want without having to be creative. I honestly put very little thought into my aquascaping.

What is the yellowish plant on your second pic? It gives great contrast =]

I *think* it's macranda, but my lighting wasn't high enough to maintain it and it eventually melted away. :( You can see the lower-right hand tips beginning to melt in that picture, actually. It's a shame, because it was beautiful.

Thanks, Funkman! I remain, howver, super jealous. As you can see, my tank didn't stay that well-scaped. :p I think I need a lower-maintenance scape.
