    Pretty. Interesting looking substrate. Is that a dirted tank or just mixed sands?

    Looks like you have three kinds of plants. Amazon Swords, the large ones with oval shaped leaves. Mondo Grass is the one with the thin dark green leaves. It's also terrestrial so you want to get rid of those quick before they melt. And on top of the wood it looks like you have Anubias Nana.

    Keep an eye on your neons with the angelfish. As the angel gets bigger the neons may become snacks.

    Plants look awesome, great job!

    Hairgrass is kind of similar and grows in a lawnish type look.

    Looks pretty good!
    If you have to replace that grass you can get some corkscrew val, it's really nice, easy to care for. Just make sure you dose with something other than Excel , co2 booster cause heard will melt the vals. Mine do great with root tabs and aqueon plant food.

    tank looks good, other than the angel later in life everything should be fine, the angels disposition is a shoot as to what will happen really. All could be well or all could be lunch.

    hopefully growing up with them will not make them lunch but if they do become lunch well they won't go extinct lol

    Vals are quite pretty plants. Just a tip from previous experience, put them in the back and sides of the tank. They grow terribly tall lol.

    :;dk I dunno lol. It might! I know the leaves shouldn't be submerged for long periods of time but I've never thought of growing it out of my filter.
