Always glad to share!

Start watching Ebay for petrified wood now! Then you have time to see if anything amazing comes by.

The giant plank of petrified wood in my tank was a one of a kind for sure and was only 50 bucks! I was the only bidder...

Wow, this is stunning. A flooded jungle temple! Would look sick with some little crayfish chillin on the ledges.

the only reason this tank looks so amazing is because it looks so natural.

Thanks everyone.

Im seriously considering putting a few dario dario in today... The tanks so big and there are soooo many shrimp I think it will be OK...

Though Ive said that before and been wrong...

I also put my single remaining Panda Cory back in... I moved my little group to my ADA 60F when I stopped feeding for a few months, and 3 jumped out... Doh!

Half the fish in my 60F have jumped out actually... Its the suicide tank. But its my trash tank so I don't mind... except for the poor fish! CPDs, Rasboras, SAE, Corys... every type of fish I put in, eventually some- actually MOST- jump out... Water is good, temp is good, there are plants and cover but it just doesn't matter... That high water line...

It has amazing depth - whatever you are using in the back has a small enough leaf to make it look like it's far away. One day this will be my inspiration to redo my 125!

Thanks!

The back top is fissidens fontanus.

Top left to middle is bolbitis.

Foreground is anubias petite.

right side and one in center is anubias coffeefolia.

Thanks for the breakdown! I guessed everything but the fissidens - glad to know I've learned something here! lol

The tank is an excellent lesson in pre-planning and scale. The scale of the various plants and their small leaves paired with the structures and the statue end up making the coffeefolia look like elephant's ears, and the java fern like a young palm tree. I see glimmers (esp. off to the left side) of what look like silhouetted tree trunks. There's so much to learn here for people wanting to make "landscapes" in their tanks!
