Ehhhh, I am hearing that LED's are not great for plants. You could always have a desk lamp shining on the tanks with a 65000K spiral light in it for the plants :) When I plan on planting... I'm going to move mine closer to a natural light source or use the lamp idea. But they look amazing! I want two more for sure!

I have a 2 gal. w/LED lights with some java fern & small anubius and the plants seem to do fine.

Matter of fact it's this tank:

I like that tank SO much, I ordered another one over the week-end! :)

Well i caved in , and setup this 10 gallon tank for Link, just to get him out of the 5 gallon I have lol, Right now the 5 gallon has nothing in it but black gravel so i transferred the water sprites and the 2 Anubias Nana plants i have with the cave decoration as well. Also got 2 snails now , I am planning to add a lot more of the live plants soon, so here is what it looks like now. So far he is really loving it!

The rock formations around the 2 Anubias Nana plants are Unikite which is a form of granite rock.

I'm not adding any other fish to the 10 gallon, i want him to have it all to himself, minus the 2 snails and the possible ghost shrimp i may or may not buy.

Now that i have the empty 5 gallon, it may be time for a nice little rescue from Petsmart or Petco :)

And so it begins......

Oooh, looking good. I like your gravel, too.

Maybe get some bacopa or wisteria in the back? I always have liked the look of wisteria on a "hill" in 10 gallons. I push the gravel up towards the back and allow it to slope gently to the front, making medium plants now quite tall, and adding depth.

Grimlock: Your tank is quite pretty already, and with some more plants, I think it will be gorgeous. And I love the unikite! It's such a pretty stone.

My new boy Julius in a 2.5 gallon.
I actually plan on converting to live plants some time around next Friday! If everything at the pet store goes according to plan, I should be coming home with anacharis, anubias, and marimo on Saturday and want to do QT for a week. I'm so excited! :D

Lovely tank! But if you really want plants, right now Petsmart is having a sale on them. I am not sure how long it is going to last, so if you can go earlier you might save some moneys!
