So just a couple pics here
This is how the rank was looking a few weeks back.
Then I stuffed it full of 15 of the nicest, largest Cryptocoryne Balansae I've ever seen...
Here they are laying across the top of the tank!
There were still some floating in the tank...
Fully planted and about a week into the tank/melting... Hahaha
In these shots I've got some extra plants-amazon swords and some others, tossed into the tank..,
