These tanks are looking great. Seems like there are a few names for rotalas that are the same plant! Hard to say. I have the one they call H’ra I find a lot of the color depends on the light .

Update April 20

P Signifer were chasing my otos and were bullying my shrimps. So decided to switch them with another wonderful specie from Borneo.
Guess..
You're right. Boraras brigittae.
I swear i never thought they would be this small. I mean even smaller than galaxy rasbora ??
But they are awesome. wow.. magnificent creature.
Here are the photos.. enjoy..




Some of them look skinny right now but dont worry, they are enjoying mosquito larvae and BBS.-


And here's my "Panda Face"


Now lets talk plants. Scroll up and read the first (1.) point that I wrote. My tank is exactly like I wanted it to be. Full of colors. Every possible shade of green, with some pink, red, orange, brown.


Plants are doing great. The battle with spirogyra was a long one but I won it.
Here's Ammania sp bonsai -


Polygonum kawagoeanum -


"Excessive Pearling Disorder "-




And this is my favorite shot of this photoshoot. Magic of prime. Should I call it "The Pearl Bokeh" !!


A long exposure one-


And here's my small 60-P filled with colors It makes me happy. I enjoy it more than anything. What else can one ask for from a tank !!

What a beautiful tank. You did a great job integrating the different colors and like you I'm in the planning stages of doing something similar to Tom Barr. I know it won't be easy having so many different plants achieve the maximum efficiency, but the learning experience alone will make it worth it.

I was a bit worried about your light for a bit. I just kept picturing it cracking the beautiful aquarium, but it seems to be holding up.

Thank you Glad you liked it.
Yeah I aggree! Its not easy to keep all the plants in great condition. I'm taking it more as a preparatory step before making my dream tank.
And yeah I did do all the research that how much weight my tank can take before putting the light up so I was pretty sure.

Really nice sumer.
The Panda loaches are a great looking fish.
Did you successfully breed the Peacocks?

Thanks
Peacocks are laying eggs every two weeks but I'm not getting time to keep up the water changes. They get fungus every time. They are very nice fish to keep

Seems very interesting. Wish you would post front view of the tank. I can't see much with the pic of the tank at an angle.

Updates May 4th

Nothing much to update except some pictures. Tank is going good. Added some more plants.
Here are the photos-

Boraras brigittae-












And here's a photo showing how much weight they have put on since they came to me-


Two females "fishing" about their men


Pseudomugil signifer male-


Pinnatifida showing the happiness-


After a very brutal and life threatening trim, Rotala sp mini butterfly is showing some new good growth-


A new addition to the tank- Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Pantanal' (formerly Ludwigia sp. 'Pantanal')


Polygonum kawagoeanum


Erio parkeri are doing great with me. Initially I got 5 of them and now i have maybe around 40+


See how one plant becomes 4-


I had to take them out of my tank and have planted them in a salad box. They are doing great there too.


Almost daily I pluck 3-4 flowers


After parkeri and cinereum, I recently got blood vomit and sieboldianum
from Chris (catfishbi). Thank you so much Chris.
The packing was amazing.


Erio sp sieboldianum-


Erio sp blood (vomit)


Whenever I put my hand in the tank, within a minute they come to greet


here's a small wabi kusa I did some time back


And it feels so great to see this photo-


And here are my D auratus.
Those sexy thighs




That was all for today. Thanks for looking
