    Last week I posted several shots of my newly planted 47 gal:

    I got my plant order and first, the ozelots were underwhelming. They were small...very small and I hope later it grows under the conditions I choose to keep it in. I also got a red rubin that didn't look completely healthy. A few small dead leaves which I removed. Still though here is the updated shot of it:

    Shot of the ozelot sword:

    Shot of my red rubin (hope this does well):

    Here is the best shot I could get of my rescaped 20 which is still a work in progress. So far I have anarcharis, java fern, contortionist vals and sags. I have just ordered 2 plants for it: Anubias Coffeefolia and Anubias Lancelota (sp?).

    Wow, very aestheticaly appealing :)
    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of substrate do you use?

    Thanks!

    Just pool filter sand for the 20.

    For the 47 I'm using a planted substrate made by AquariumPlants.com in Natural Amazon color. They also have Black Diamond and Red River which I am going to use for my coming 80 gallon bow which is going to be placed right beside the 20 and I'm hoping by then, all 3 of them together will be very aesthetically appealing.
