I'm assuming you are referring to the FTS of the right side of the tank, in that case the plants in the front on the right are crypts (not sure which variety though)

|Soujirou||I really like you tank. It's pretty cool that your angelfish are healthy enough to spawn all the time. Do you know what those plants are in the front on the right side?|

time for another update 4/25/12
Another big update, as you can tell I have run out of room for plants in the tank, so I decided to look into ripariums. I also drew inspiration from the Planted HOB thread.
I got the planters (shower caddies) for like 2 bucks at dollar general. The foam for the peninsulas I had lying around from electronic packaging.
I'm waiting to get some hydroton for the planters. I'm also on the look out for additional plants for the foam peninsulas and the one planter.
Here is what the tank looks like now.

Well it looks like I failed at my own challenge. Will try and snap a few shots of the tank tonight.
Really like the shots of the angle fish fry. Breeding fish is a blessing and a curse all at the same time. Sometimes it is really hard to get rid of baby fish when you don't have room for them.
Looks like your tank is turning into a jungle. Doesn't take long sometimes.

At this point I'm not sure where I would put a Bolivian Ram, I guess in my 40 with the Asian fish since its likely any in the 29 would just get harassed by the angelfish parents. I'd happily take a couple off your hands I love bolivians.

Big Picture Update!
These pics are about a month or two old now but aside from plant growth and trimming nothing has really changed. The big alternanthera is now growing up and horizontally across the tank at the water surface The angelfish spawns never grow up. They spawn about every two weeks and end up eating the fry, letting them be eaten or they die...I haven't actually witnessed the demise of a spawn yet. But thats ok I don't have room for raising angelfish.

Sorry to hear about your ram. One of these days I should hook you up with a couple of mine. I am starting to think that the six in my 75 might be too many. I would also like to do some Apistos at some point.
How about this, before March 1st we update pictures of our tanks? I need to do the same. Mine is a bit of a mess right now though.

Update on the tank....
Water Sprite is now spread in a line down the middle of the tank. The angelfish spawn every couple weeks. So far none of the babies have survived much beyond a week after becoming free swimming. I'm not trying to be a breeder so its not the end of the world.
Everything else is going as normal. Need to get some new pictures up.
