added some chinesis. Sorry iPhone is the only camera I have...
Everything is growing!
I'll try to get pics of the individual plants because you can't see the crypts in this photo. Should have lace java and african fern arriving tomorrow!

|blue1delta||I have had trouble with them moving and uprooting. I have just been moving things and trying to position wood and rocks to keep them from damaging them. The fish are the reason I have the aquarium so I don't mind accommodating them. The crypts are the biggest problem. They do fine with the swords, dwarf sag, and ferns.|

|cmathews95||im really curious about how your plants will do with cichlids. have you had any trouble so far|

Thanks! Everything is growing which is good, but it seems very slow.
Anyone have thoughts on the hardscape? Once the plants are rooted really well I plan on removing the gray rock in the center in front of the sword. I also have three small pieces of driftwood that are still floating and the large piece you see in the top left corner. I kind of like it up there and I've attached some needle leaf on it. I'm thinking of tying it up there to keep it from sinking.

|amajoh||Welcome! I'm new, too. Yours looks great so far. I'll be eager to hear how your dwarf sag is doing. I've been wanting some, but haven't yet taken the leap.|

|blue1delta||Planted a ton of dwarf sag today! excited to see it looking so green in my tank|

|CPDzeke||I am in about the same situation as you, but I consider myself more experienced because I have always had plants. Welcome!|

I'm adding a lot of new plants this week thanks to some forum members for hooking me up!
Today I received some needle leaf java, trident java, and some kind of moss that was attached as a bonus. I'm expecting some dwarf sag and crypts in the next couple of days.

welcome i'm just learning about plants myself. cichlids are another story though i've been raising them for years. your tank looks nice, but just a warning one day you may wake up to find it rearanged to the fishes liking especially with the green terror in there! either way good luck and i'll follow along.
