    I would direct you to the Tropica website. There is an Inspiration section where you can view pics of beautifully scaped planted tanks. They provide all the information about plants, substrate, ferts, CO2 and lights used. Each tank pictured there has a layout map as well showing where each plant was placed. It is not a cheap or easy undertaking... a lot of time and care is involved. That said, you could take it slow like I am doing and should eventually have something beautiful like you've mentioned.

    Look on YouTube, lots of good tutorials, for example George Farmer.

    I prefer the desert look. I make it look so real!
