YAY!!!!! Planted tanks!!! FINALLY! (lotsa pics)

I got home and did water changes and was finally able to put the driftwood and plants in my tank. I had enough to do my 10 and 4 gallon tanks!!!

Here are some pics.

Before...


After...

Blue Jeans' side before...


and after...



Demetri's tank before..


and after...


excuse the bridge.. this piece of wood isn't completely water logged apparently so the bridge is holding it down.

Here's a break down of the plants:
Fish's side-
-Dwarf Sag (I believe thats what the grass is)
-1 Amazon Sword
-1 Apon

Blue Jeans' side-
-Dwarf Sag
- Water wisteria (I think thats what the parsley looking plant is?)
-1 small apon
-1 java fern (which I think could be divided but I'm not sure)

Demetri's tank-
-Dwarf Sag
- This stuff... Frogbit???


Demetri also has 2 plastic plants in there until I can get some more plants.

I really am liking the look of the 10 but I want to cover the back a little more. I might try a back drop or I might just get some tall plants. I also want to do a small carpet in the front so any suggestions are welcome.

Demetri's tank is a work in progress. Since the plants are in gravel we'll see how they do compared to the plants in the eco complete. I would like to put an amazon sword, some java ferns, and some floating java moss in that tank as well.

I'm gonna let the 10 gallon sit for a week and then I'm going to get some ghost shrimp (4 for each side). Hopefully a few will survive.

Thanks guys :)

BFC.. you know there is a Connecticut Betta Club? Maybe you could become a member and possibly get some stuff. I got all my plants and driftwood for free (except the amazon sword and java fern which I bought myself). Someone was cleaning house and wanted to get rid of the driftwood and the president of the club just gave me a bunch of plants because I told him I was looking to buy plants for my tank. Its not just about getting stuff either.. I really had fun at my first meeting and I'm so excited for the show I'm counting the days :D
