200 gallon LFS Display

Hey everyone! So for my first post on this forum, I thought I'd share something special.

This is my LFS' 200+ gallon aquarium plant tank. They hold and sell about 300 various specimens within this tank, often comprising a dozen species or more at a time. Me and one of the owners, Marla, will be selling these plants for very reasonable prices on eBay soon. Let me know if any of you are interested.

Species include:
Bacopa amplexicaulis
Ludwigia repens
Amazon Swords
Argentine Swords
Java Fern
Lobelia cardinalis
Rotala indica
Gymnocoronis spylanthoides
Ammania gracillis
Elodea :P

For now, here are the pics They were taken with an iPhone 5.

Great looking tanks! Check out the For Sale thread here as they will tell you this needs to go there. Will do better there once you start getting set-up and will find better buyers here in this forum.

purple seem to be lobelia card dwarf. Majority or all plants seem to be submerged grown and then planted into one tank.
