latest pic of my 70 gallon loach and rainbow tank

Here's the latest pic I snapped last night. My cabomba is growing really well which is my favorite plant. Just replaced my odno tubes with T5 ho 54 watts I'll post an update in a while.
Cheers

Oooooh pretty! Great job!

How do you like the hillstreams. Fascinating fish - I just couldn't keep them. How are they with feedings?

That is a very dramatic aquascape Botia, I love it. I'll bet the loaches enjoy all the cover they've got with those healthy looking plants. Does your Cabomba branch very often? I just put some Cabomba furcata in my tank a few weeks ago (my first experience with Cabomba) and have noticed that it's starting to branch. I was wondering if I should let the branches grow or prune and replant them when they get long enough? I've also read that if you top Cabomba it will often sprout another growth point from that node. Is that correct? And sorry for all the questions, I just don't know many people who keep such healthy Cabomba, so you must know a little bit about it

cabomba?

Thanks
This is the first time I have had cabomba since I have been serious about plants. I let it grow till it is the length I want then cut it about 1/4 inch from the node below. Depending on the angle and light it either branches somewhere else or it seems to grow very close to where I cut it off.
I started 3 weeks ago with 2 6 inch high bunches of 5 stems. I know have it in all my tanks. I love the soft look to it and that light still gets through somewhat. A side benefit is that my kissing gouramis and loachers can't seem to hurt like they do to my hygro's which the poke holes in all the time.
By the evening time it all looks like this I think soon I'll run out of tanks to plant it in.

Very nice looking tank! The rainbows look gorgeous surrounded by all those plants. I thought about adding in some rainbows but they would not look nearly as nice as they are in your tank.

I liked the look of your cabomba so much that I ripped out a bunch of plants from my tank and planted a large stand of it.
