You're quite adept at making maximum use of limited space - both of your tanks a beautiful little self-contained worlds. I'm guessing the emergent plant is a Marsilea sp. - anybody else out there able to confirm?

I agree, a species of Marsilea for sure. But a very beautiful tank. 5/5

Absolutely stunning. I love the mixture of the lush jungle on the right with the more open field on the left. Also, I believe the unknown cryptocoryne is wendtii.
