That plant just caught my eye as soon as I saw photo , especially the Full View ( which I appreciate )
It is a beauty , thick stems and lush !
You must have great lighting by the way they talk.
I am trying to learn more plant names for future reference and I found a site that helps a lot... maybe you would be interested...

the lights are reasonable I'm looking to replace them with some T5's as they are now becoming more available in England.

cheers I've added that link to my bookmarks

You definitely have some beautiful plants that I would consider uncommon. Your tanks are better than the ones in the books!

thankyou
the owner of my lfs is keen on planted tanks in fact his tank inspired me to set one up and one day Ill get to his standard. this helps a great deal as he gets lots of unusual plants in and holds them in tanks setup with decient lights, Co2 and substrate heating so they are in near perfect condition when I purchase them. but he is very expensive when compared to other shops in the area, but you get what you pay for and that is quality
also I tend to lurk about the shop when he prunes on his display tank to see if I can aquire any unusual cuttings.
the help I recieved from him over the years has helped me a great deal.

I used to live in New Jersey, where I had no fewer than a dozen great Fish Stores within a 20-30 minute drive from my house. Down heah in Mississippi, there's one 'ok' shop 20 mins from my house but I need to drive over an hour to get to a shop that has some really nice stock.

I miss hanging out at the LFS, though. There was one shop in Wayne, NJ that I used to hang out at almost every night. I became pretty good friends with the owner's son and got freebie samples all the time.

I have 3 LFSs that I go to often. Two of them are within a block of each other, while the other is closer to where I live. One definitly has a better plant selection, but its prices are OK. It gets a lot of plants in that are the same, and has OK variety, I am considering ordering from somewhere online.
