How do you think plants would fare if a alligator was added to a planted tank?
Wow I am surprised they sell alligators in stores! Hope someone does not try to keep one in a tiny tank.

That does look very nice. The new vase looks great, particularly with the rock in the middle.
As for the Rotala Indica, I think it should withstand the salt. This is one hardy plant!
