Emmanuel's 100 gallon tank journal - Rescape in progress


So my 15 gallon has gone through several transformations since I got it earlier in the year... if interested, you can read about it here.

This is the latest scape I chose for it.

I like the placement of you DW; it looks really nice!
I love the tree look in tanks (: What's your foreground plant?
I think I see some hair grass but I'm not sure.

That's an incredible piece of driftwood!

That's going to look very cool once it's all grown in.

I can't wait to see when this grows out.

Is that java moss or riccia on the "tree stump" ?

Thanks to all!

As far as plants go, that's javamoss on the dw. I've got a ton more in a 5 gallon that had bga, but that's dying off already, so I'll be able to add some more, if not RAOK it out .

On the left side, I've got Dwarf Sag in the back, and dwarf hairgrass in the front. The plan is to find somewhere to put that dwarf sag, or RAOK it, and just replace the whole tank with the hairgrass.

I haven't been able to identify the plant around the DW. It was sold to me as glosso at an LFS, but it definitely isn't. My money is on maybe HM or bacopa(?). I'll post some pictures when I get a chance to get help with an ID.

Update.
Took out the unknown plant on the right, Dwarf Hairgrass, and Dwarf Sag.
I added microsword, which I bought from rmc for $30. Enough to cover this tank, and my 20 gallon entirely!

Due to hurricane Ike, all of my microsword is melted, and all of my fish and amano shrimp are dead

I've been left no choice but to be redundant: the wood is simply great. Is it deku?

Not too sure what it is. I just saw it at one of my favorite LFS and I had to have it.

Will be upgrading this one sometime soon.

Here's the scape I'm thinking of.
