Really like it. Something about the way the limnophila is growing up behind the driftwood reminds me of palm trees.

Nice tank. The Limnophila looks great! I really like your driftwood also.

Thanks again! So the HC is basically all gone now, but the dwarf hair grass is really taking off! See:


Also, my Anubias nana has flowered (you can see in this shot some of the BBA that has sprung up; its not too bad, its mostly just on the anubias)


And here is just a decent shot of a shimp:

Updated FTS;

Moss really taking off. Drop checker added (thanks Hoppy). Blyxa growing quickly! ...Anyone know why my java ferns constantly look like crap? The limno grows incredibly fast. I've trimmed about 12" off it in maybe 2 weeks...yikes!

Nice looking tank! I do agree that the Limnophilia look like palm trees

Do the shrimp seem to be reproducing with all those Tetras in there?

No; they carry eggs, but there's no way to survive beyond hatch....even the pineapple sword fry stand no chance of survival. I have yet to save one. Oh well; that's the nature of things.
