Beautiful! That Myriophyllum mattogrossense is a beautiful plant and the fine leaves contrast beautifully against the bread leaves of the anubias and crypts. It will look even better once it has filled in to make a nice shrub.

thx

Myriophyllum mattogrossense is a weed. I have a nice looking bush in my 55G which needs to be trimmed on weekly basis. Once it gets bushy, it looks a typical Dutch plant.

Nice looking weeds, Jay

Seriously, that's a very attractive tank. Nice job. Interested in watching this one grow in. Hope you post updates later.

I love tanks that have nice driftwoods as the centerpiece. Very nice!

anyone know what will happen if i go outside and collect some branches, fresh ones, boiled them, and put them inmy tank. im expecting fungus and rotting. or is there another way around. i dont like the "peices" at the LFS, they look really bulky. i like natural branchy stuff.

yea. what about that? i think it might work except it won't look good. i have a piece of wood in my tank that is not driftwood. it doesn't look that good though, but it works. its actually a piece for terrarium... i think its a soft wood. i can see all the fibers in the wood. i want to get rid of it though.
