Wow that's just beautiful, I want mine to end up looking something like that, the plants do give the tank a lot of potential...I spy a moss ball lol .

Thanks! I feel like I went a little overboard on the plants but the fish seem to like it, lol. There's actually 4 moss balls hiding in there somewhere, they migrate thanks to the pleco, haha.

Fwiw, the plants that are doing the best for me are my ludwigia repens, anubias and water wisteria. The ludwigia especially grows a couple inches a week it seems like.

No u didn't it looks perfect, and I'm sure the fishes love it I bet they're always around them or hiding in them...nice I just spotted one lol I plan on getting two more though...how long did it took you for it/them to grow that big? Mines like the size of a golf ball lol...and really I'm gonna have to look into it, I was gonna stick with Amazon, swords, red melons, water sprite and java fern....have u had any of those before?

Haven't finished planting yet. But you can get a full look with only two different types of plants.

My moss balls are roughly golf ball sized too, maybe a little bigger, they haven't grown at all yet that I can tell but I hear they're really slow growers. Water sprite is similar to wisteria, i have swords (amazon, micro, and argentine) they're all doing fairly well with root tabs. I've got quite a bit of java fern, the windelov seems to be growing slightly faster than the regular kind, both have just started getting lots of baby plants recently.

Thanks! I started out with a few but got impatient waiting for them to grow in, lol, so I got a bunch more. You should definitely look into ludwigia, it's a really lovely plant that seems to grow very well with little fuss.
I keep fish are those jungle vals? They look awesome!

33g long, low tech riparium style.
Plants are: Anubias, Java ferns, swords both micro and standard, bacopa, crypts, Marino covered driftwood. For some reason I had no luck with Ludwigia. It would get lots of new growth but also lose lots of old growth.
Riparium plants are: umbrella, polka dot, Dracena, curly bambo (Dracena), and pothos.

Beautiful setups! I'm impressed how many people are fans of aquatic plants

Beautiful tank! What is that large plant in the center? I am trying to decide on a few starter plants.
