Wow. Just gorgeous. 5 stars. What is "Cans Planta Soil"? I can't seem to find it on the internet.

Cans planta soil is erroneous I think. Its ANS planta soil. Its a locally imported substrate; cheaper but less nutritious compared to ADA

Nice Aquascaping! It makes the tank look much bigger than five gallon (at least when looking at the main photo).
