That's very pretty, although on the FTS I didn't see the floating plant.

Is that duckweed?

Works great. I used filter media from an established tank. I had an instant cycle.
The first pic was cloudy because i didn't clean the flourite enough.

Thank you.
You should be able to see the Red root floater in every pic, except the first.

I did not like how the driftwood looked. The peacock moss took to it no problem.
I pulled the driftwood and replaced with crypts. I'm throwing Fontanus in a little bit here and there. When i have enough i might do a moss wall.
This is a pic right before i pulled the driftwood.

Hello GMYukonon24s,

That would be Helanthium tenellum. It is the type that turns red under the right type of light. I didn't want it anymore in my Chaos tank. It would be the plant on the right side of the pic in my signature. So it ended up in this one. It does grow great in this tank, just stays green.
I got it from Barthog.
