    This is my week old first proper attempt at a planted. There is a little bit of tannin in the water, from either the DW or the soil (despite numerous boilings, I think it's still the DW)

    I'm still trying to figure out what the plants are (our LFS's here aren't exactly all knowing, and I seem incapable of getting success with this sort of internet research)

    Hope you enjoy the pics :D

    I'm contemplating going small with the stocking when we eventually get there, probably a Beta with a small bottom feeder and a few something else < 1inch in adult size.

    Ideas and comments welcome:;thx

    theshiftys_jm, iloveengl : Thanks, my SO was tasked with choosing plants and took upon herself to do the aquascaping, she's a lot more creative than me so that's why it looks good :D I'm kept around to do the maintenance lolz

    Great job. Here are my 2 cents on plant ID: the plant in the 3rd pic looks like Chain Sword to me. The next one seems to be a Green Crypt and the last looks like Amazon Sword.

    Looking forward to see more pics after you cycle.

    Looks lovely! You've done so much with a small space and it will be a very lucky fish that lives there :D

    thanks to all for the compliments - my SO is beaming from them :D

    Thanks also for the help Id'ing the plants, now I've got a name for 'em I can find 'em on  .

    Butterfly : thanks for the advice, is there a specific reason that plants with Rhizomes need to be attached to something as opposed to living off the substrate?
