TO SEE HIGH QUALITY PICS, I RECOMMEND YOU GO TO THE LAST PAGE AND WORK BACKWARDS
Well I had a saltwater tank for 2 years but decided it was just too much work to actually enjoy. I was then left with an algae encrusted eclipse 12 tank with minimal plants and minimal "wow" factor. I decided to upgrade to a 40 gallon breeder tank, and I plan to turn the 12 gallon into a rimless riparium at some point. Anyways, enough about that and more of the 40 breeder
All plants came from the Swap and Shop right here on TPT...not really sure what style I'm going for...

Sorry for the quality, I only have my BlackBerry for a camera...
2 Days after filling, only Blyxa Japonica...
Today, just after I planted the new plants that came today...
Good news is that my blyxa japonica is already pearling, at least there's some kind of sign that I'm doing something right....
Now for the hard part, waiting for the HC to grow in
