This is going to be great! But you know it's going to mess with your head if you're not "entirely" happy with it. For what it's worth, I like the layout.

Ok here is some pictures. Th R. butterfly and the R. sp. green was pretty tall but I wanted to plant with roots on them. In about a week the roots should be comfortable with the substarate. Then ill do a big trim and replant some back. hopefully after a few trims Ill get the dense short bushy look Im going for.
Ok enjoy. Please give me some feedback. Ill probably add some micro rasbora kubotai. I dont feel like paying the high price for sandanio axelrodi blue.

After two weeks the plants have taken root. Its now time for a trim to get the stems nice and bushy and a water change. I might start adding live stock, since this tank has grown emerged for a month and after filling I added water from my big tank as well as cycle and tetra's fresh water version of biospora its called tetra safe start. I have had success with safe start and am able to add live stock to an uncycled tank as long as the bio load is low initially.

I've been thinking about trying that Rotala Butterfly. I might want to buy some off of you in a month or two. Has the color stayed the same?
