Forground kind of looks like Marsilea quadrifolia. But M. crenata or M. "minuta" will hug the ground tighter.

Thanks guys for the response,i searched the tropica website under marsilea and i found this plant that they have which resembled mine,not sure if it is the one,seems like though.

Marsillea hirsuta is a fascinating plant, usually delivered with leaves like a four-leaf clover. After a transitional period it develops different types of leaves, possibly a low form with single leaves like a large Glossostigma, or alternatively develop two, three or four-lobed leaves varying in height, depending on the growth conditions. Whichever form the plant adopts, it forms runners and spreads rapidly round the aquarium. The scientific name for this unusual aquatic fern has not yet been finally settled.

That is going to be another very nice tank. I remember it now. Such an interesting shape too. Nice terracing of the plants.

Thanks alot for your compliments,it is really very encouraging for me. It's really been a very long journey to get to where i am now. I must say that i have failed many times and everytime,a new lesson was learnt. Really learnt alot from ths wonderful forum as well. Without it,I would still have been in the dark about alot of aspects with regards to keeping a planted tank. For now,it is only the beginning.I will be keeping my fingers crossed as the tank matures.Thanks once again for the compliments.

Your tank is looking great, YOuHO! I really like the aquascaping, you have lots of nice open swimming space for your discus. Nice job, I can't wait to see it grow in even more.

YouHo...looking good!
Marselia species IS four leaf clover. Emersed form is 4 leaves, sumbersed is a single round leave that runs into plantlets. I have both in my tank, although the emersed one is beginning to now shoot off the sumbersed type of leaf. It is great. Keep up the good work~

Firstly,thanks to everyone once again for your compliments,it's been really wonderful seeing such comments. Frankly speaking,i was expecting criticisms because the other tanks here all seem so much nicer than mine. But then i am really glad that you guys have enjoyed my tank as much as i did.

Yeah,haha,i just noticed that when i searched the plant species up on yahoo.So seems like it is kind of hard to differentiate the different subspecies under this family of plants.But i love this plant,it has a very unique look and if am not wrong,it is very rare in Singapore,haven't seen such plant around before.

I bought this discus from a local LFS for a bargain,apparently,hobbyists do not fancy it as it is all white except for a slight tinge of baby blue on it's fins. The LFS called it snow white,i am not sure of the actual name though.

I do not think that the tank is overstocked,fishes seem to be doing fine and when i tested the nitrate levels,it was well near the 0 range.Previously i used to have cardinal and rumny nose tetras in the tank as well but they have died over time due to old age.Furthermore,my LFS even suggested that i have more discuses but i did not do so as i am already comfortable with what i have now.

i thought it might be snow white but wasnt sure...i think as it grows and its color fills in, it will look even prettier....i like them cos they look more delicate , but i dont own any (yet ) and, as far as i know, they are quite popular in the us

Update 20/08/2006

It has been almost a month since my last update and 3 months since the tank was set up and since then,it has undergone some changes. About 2 weeks ago,my tank experienced GW and i was fighting a losing battle against it for about a week until i decided to get myself a UV light.Prior to the arrival of the UV light,i had tried in vain to wipe out the GW through several water changes. The GW just came back within a day of the water changes. I had no idea as to how the GW came about as i was not overdosing at any point of time and all the water parameters were ideal. Subsequently,after turning on the UV light for 12 hours straight a day for 4 days,the water cleared up once again.


Here are updates of the tank after the water has cleared up,i was amazed at the amount of growth that went on behind the murky green water. Pardon the image quality,i could not get my hands on the digital camera and had to settle for my camera phone instead.

Full tank view


The following shots will take you on a tour around the tank from the left side(upon entering the house) to the right side(couch area).














My slow grow,low requirement area of the tank.


I was amazed at how much the japonica and dao noi had grown.




And heres a picture of my snow white looking all puzzled as to why it's picture is being taken.


Guys,i need an ID on this plant,thanks

Hope you guys enjoyed the picture updates,feel free to comment.
