Hi, first of all, awesome tank. Very pretty and natural. What are those long floating plants called? They're pretty.

Whoo, finally finally posting Shane's finished tank! Got the last plants, and a new heater in the mail today. :D
10g


Wish my camera still worked though, my phone takes the color out of everything.
Eight fake plants! And two hides he made great use of when i first put him in there, doesn't use them so much anymore.
It's kinda cloudy because i had just seeded the tank with the brown gravel you see there. The tall green/yellow Diandra is a bit tall, but I thought it created a nice canopy. xD

The tank has been set up and planted since 12/22. :) I'm pretty excited about it, especially since my plants are actually growing!!!
I LOVE your sorority tank, I'm Sooo jealous

Wow, I'm so jealous of all these planted tanks!
How hard is it to take care of the live plants?
Don't they make the water dirty?
Lol I have no clue, sorry.

I have never had a planted tank, but from what I researched (for a future tank), the initial setup and maintenance of one can be some work, but after a while, the maintenance becomes reasonable (pruning, fertilizing on occasion, etc).

Plants are very beneficial to a water ecosystem. They actually haelp keep the water CLEANER! They are kinda like natural filters. :)

Eventually it might be worth a try then! When I first brought home my late betta Murphy I had bought a live plant for him, but this was way before I knew anything about taking care of a betta. I didn't quarantine the plant or anything, and it seemed that within a day of putting the plant in that the water got so dirty. I'll have to look into it more aswell and see if it's something I might do in the future too.
:P

Plants do not cause water to be dirty in my years of fish keeping experience.
