Beautiful simplicity for plant layout btw!
I have about 15 separate rhizomes. I have divided the 2 anubias at the very back so many times and spread them out in order to get the spread i like. I also have about 30 separate rhizomes i ordered online i will be receiving soon.

Did a water change and moved Anubias around that have sprouted many new leaves in the back and were not well exposed. Looking to get my electric blue rams soon in the tank.

your tank looks great; love the look of anubias in the gravel. mine are all attached to dw, but i like your perspective and intend to try the same in places too.

Why thank you for the compliment. It was a slow process to get the roots to grow to where i would of liked so i could bury things the way i wanteed and keep the anubias packed in an attractive way. I think the most important thing is to provide medium light, dose a lot, and 2 water changes per week!

Small update. I did a little bit of trimming on the larger anubias leaves that were old and starting to not look as good as the new ones. But have a lot of leaves coming along so it will soon fill out. Was able to take a video after the water change today. I recorded on my cell phone and i am not the best person when it comes to recording so bear with me.

beautiful, would look cool with some floaters, or a branchy piece of manzanita coming out of the plants.

White eggcrate is on top. I cut it down with a hacksaw and made an opening in the center for the light fixture.

Home depot sells it. Should be located in the lighting section. Commonly used in light fixtures and the employees there might known them by the name of "light diffuser"

nice additions and update!

as i mentioned earlier, you have inspired me to get some planted in the substrate. got some small ones from petsmart (ie not petites) and the trick has been to keep them planted while not burying the rhizome.....seems overnight they become floaters

i'm on to your sinker approach, lol...

educational thread, thanks.
