Tank is planted!!
Hydrophilia Corybosa Siamensis 53B
When I left Menagerie I was worried that the 5 gallon would still look bare having only purchased a potted stem plant, some tall grass looking thingy and teeny cup of clover-looking things, but now that I have them in the tank I can see that any more would have been a real headache to have fit in. The Rotala was easiest to plant of all three, all I really needed to do was divide them, and stick'em in the dirt. The Hydro and the Vallis were somewhat more difficult.. I had to plant the Hydrophilia twice as I quickly realized it's roots required some trimming before putting them in the dirt. The Vallis has thus far been the most aggrivating as the larger specimen keeps trying to escape from it's earthy bonds. In the end, I had so much Hydrophilia in the tank that I decided to move some next door to Finn's aquarium. I have NO idea if it will survive in the Rainbow colored gravel I've planted the little guy in but I do know that Finn is very happy and keeping his new leafy friend company in his home.
Now for some Pictures!!!!
A look at the Rotala 'Bonsai' which will hopefully end up carpeting the tank's floor
Closer look at the Rotala. This one wasn't planted very well. I hope it survives!
Here's Finn's tank with his share of greenery
And finally, a photo of the two tanks together:
