The right side now has crypts all along the back, anubias midground, and then it DID have glosso foreground, but this tank is now resident at my moms place, and thus I only see it about every 3 weeks. CO2 ran out a week or so ago and the glosso kinda fell out lol...threw it out last night. Some is still there so it will likely grow back when I get the tank refilled.

Thanks My swords and plecos certainly like it; they breed constantly. There are at least 20 1/2" ancistrus plecos in this tank.

Is your name in reference to motorcycles? If so, I have a cherry red, amazingly preserved 1975 Suzuki A100 - a beautiful, classic little two-stroke

Ha! So funny for you to mention belem! I wanted to add belem sooo bad! Eleocharis 'belem' CANNOT be found in Canada, not that I can find anyway. I've been after it for months. I finally just decided to grab a couple of pots of glosso, just so I'd have something - anything -in the foreground. Great suggestion though, I love that belem.

If I ever spot it, or if my local plant guy can get it (last time we talked, he told me 6 months), then I will def. do a belem lawn.

I'm sort of into like...having one side open, and the other side have a peice of driftwood; rule of thirds. More natural looking scape.
