This is my first planted tank. It's a work in progress. I plan on taking the rock out as soon as the driftwood is water logged. The lemon bacopa looks un-natural because I just trimmed the tops and re-planted them in front.

I'm going to add more red on the right side to break up the green, I just haven't decided what plant exactly.

The tiger lotus is by far my favorite. I am also very fond of the over-sized amazon sword lol.

It is huge. I got it for $12. It's probably the nicest and fullest sword I have ever seen. Probably not a good idea putting it in a 20 gallon but I can always sell it back to the fish store :)

If only fish could appreciate how nice a planted tank looks!
Good work :)

I love your lotus too - I'd also love to see your java fern get huge.

That really is a very lush sword :)

Are you planning on fish for this tank?

nice balance of plants and I love the way you pointed out the rock for us nice :) It reminded me of Conair ;)

I'm living my life, but not necessarily in the right order :)

Good lighting, good substrate, and fertilizer. You should give it a go sometime, they're really not as hard as they seem :D
