WOw tank looks fantastic. Love the tomato dirt.
I just checked out the castle tank too. To be honest I glanced by the "Ornamentaria" thread and I because I didn't actually see your scape. That is a beautiful setup. I applaud your talets. I'm pretty sure that is the first scape I've seen that uses castles and it actually looks good.

Update: About a month. Everything is moving along well. Following Walstads prescribed practices. Using Excel and Trace + a mineral / vitamin supplement I mixed.

|Luminescent||Thank you so much - I am aiming for very natural. One of these days I may do an extremely controlled, scaped till it screams, 'Amano' style tank but not yet.|

|Shangrila||This is really beautiful. You have amazing talent! I wish I had a brain and eye that worked like that. Its so natural looking.|

Update- 11 days.
Full Album here: http://imgur.com/a/wwc9i
Past couple of days: Capped with black sand. Filled in with some trimmings from 40, 3 Anubias Nana and the 5 White Clouds.
I should have brushed the plants off, but here it is.
Going for the SE Asian tropical river look - but not an exacting biotope as I want to be free to play with diff plants/fish.
Eleocharis from the river -
Added Tanychthys last night- caught them way back in the corner doing this by morning. Got these guys as small unknown fry from a feeder tank at the local lfs a year ago- 15 of them for cycling a 29. They all lived, sold 10 back to the lfs a month ago.

|lochaber||Well done with the scaping, it looks nice, natural, and like it has sufficient hiding places, etc.|

You are good at this.
Maybe it is Lilaeopsis carolinensis ? Where are you?

I like the tomato/beer tank and although I can not help to answer your question on the plant ID I wanted to comment and let you know I'm interested to see how it goes.
On your other tank; My kids would go crazy over that amazing scene. I love that you did that for your kids with the Sleeping Beauty's Castle tank. I guess I expected disney characters strewn about but I was wrong, you tastefully made a scene that would delight any adult or child. I am so impressed with the scale of everything and the way the plants, substrate and even fish supported the theme of the tank. Truly incredible tank! I think you are a cool mom for doing it. I am inspired to create an aquarium that will capture the imagination of my little ones and will definitely consider trying my hand at it in the future.
