The tall plants growing out of the tank are Amazon Sword plants... I've had them before but none grew out like it did with this tank. I think it must be the 10-20 mins of sunlight they get. They're so much taller and leaves are super wide.

The plants on the Manzanita wood are java ferns, they're really easy plants to keep. Just tie them to the wood and you're set.

I love the natural light that shines in through the tank from the window. Gorgeous. I have done this same thing before and the plants really respond nicely! Your Amazon Swords are incredible! You also did a great job with the layout. Beautiful.

The light fixture I use is a odyssea t5 light from aquatraders. Many people have complained about their products and service but let me tell you. After 2 light fixtures and many light bulbs bought from them I have nothing but good things to say about their products and services. Their lights are the most affordable around.

Very nice tank, very nice. now I have a idea on what i really want to achieve with my tank, yet to be done. i'm trying to get all the things I want in it first. And I see you're not using anything, ferts, C02, which is another thing i like, just letting the plants do their own thing. Really like your tank, thanks for showing it. Rev
