This Tank is still growing in. I live in the middle of nowhere in the Ozarks, and the only foreground plants I could get were half dead when I purchased. I have been slowly growing them in from a few sparse plantlets that I put down with tweezers. Yeah, it took a while! lol The background plants were purchased a month later and they too were few and far between. I just keep growing, trimming, and replanting 'til it looks the way I like it. ;-)

I gotta ask, where is this tank? From an artistic perspective, it's an AWESOME photo.
