Both of those are beautiful tanks, nice work! The addition of the rock on the right does look good.

Seeing the 20 long de-rimmed for the reef tank makes me wish I did that to mine before...

The first plant picture is Symplocarpus foetidus (skunk cabbage). It is actually a rather interesting plant if you read about it. The sixth plant picture appears to be some sort of Iris sp.

No, it is not bad at all, it just looked like they needed some. I've always planted swords with the crown about halfway above the substrate. I can't really say if it is right or wrong, but the swords...

I'm pretty sure that is Echinodorus parviflorus 'tropica'. It is not a rhizomatous plant, so that would be the crown at the base. It looks like the crown is alright, so what you might be seeing is...

I run the UVL red sun on my 4 bulb fixture with a UVL indigo sun for the noon burst. On its own it is too red, but looks fine to me when it has another bulb to balance out the look of the tank.

It is Utricularia gibba, a somewhat common hitchhiker that takes over. Manual removal is the only way I know to get rid of it, and it takes some patience to do.

A bit hard to make out, but it appears to be Riccia fluitans. I'm only going off color and basic shape, so I could be completely wrong.

What kind of pH drop do you get? Shooting for a 1.0 pH drop with the CO2 would give roughly 30 ppm and would be much easier to test than waiting for a drop checker to change color. It is still only...

I think that is one of the random, weird, common names for Limnophila aromatica. If so, it should take root easily if the fertilizers and light is right for it. So, what is your substrate, lighting,...

That is an agar gel that is used as a growth medium for tissue culturing the plants. It is a neat process for creating a plant from very little.
