i bought some new fake plants and thought of sharing some pics to show the "quality".
they still look a bit fake but i'm not going to put them in front of the glass B)
if you can place them the right spot they can look great imho, i'll experiment a bit with them and post some more pics when i planted them ;)

most of them are from hugo kamishi, i bought 2 from fluval also

here are some "dry" pics

hugo kamishi














fluval











wet pics will follow soon ;)

I love artificial plants and have a few of the same silk ones from the first pic.
My oscars still pull them out but I don't mind that's their thing.

Great looking plants. Did they come from the website you gave me the link to ?

I like the red and have tried red plants.. my big O hates red, reefs them out almost instantly. Green he tolerates till he gets bored. I'm having decent luck now with a big green and yellow one. He's only plucked a couple of stems off a couple of times.

Now I wonder if the red is a kinda trigger, stemming from the red Hikari pellet bag that I wave in front of the tank at chow time. I been doing that since he was a wee tadpole, and he gets revved up. Could be.

another good source for silk plants is a hobby store, requires a bit more work to get into your aquarium, but can look quite lifelike (basically diorama plants).

Looks like you picked up some nice ones. Look forward to seeing how you set up the tank with them!
