Wow amazing! This is why UG is my favorite ground cover plant. Oh, and hide the heater behind the plants a little :P

Default Re: Ads' 800x600x450 frameless underwater garden - Now with PICS!!

What soil/dirt are you using, and is there anything on top of it? I used organic pond compost, about 1" deep with about the same of 2-3mm stone on top. I'm not very successful with this setup....and I think my Molly's are eating most of what I'm planting too.
Any suggestions welcome :-(

You could always try planting some more hardy plants. I found that water wisteria works well. It gives a bushy look to the tank and grows like crazy so if your mollies nibble on a leaf or two you won't have to worry as it always has some other shoots growing anyway.
Good luck

Foreground - UG
Second Tier - Staurogyne Tropica
Top tier - Blyxia
Front RHS - Ludwigia, I think.

I do want to add a little more colour but no sure what to use at this stage. Looking for something squat, to replace the ludwigia (as mentioned I think that's what it is). Although maybe I will remove that area all together as I think it hides the elevation a little too much.

Nice work! That UG will look fantastic when filled in. I think it's a beautiful scape.

Hi all ....

I was worried my tank may start cycling again, and take out some casualties as well.

It been one week, fish and shrimp seem healthy. May upload a pic as well. So I'm glad it hasn't been a disaster so far.

I used a different soil to top it all up, I gather all the nutrients of the Aquasoil are still available to all the plants. All be it 6" deeper in some areas.
