This tank looks very nice. How many gallons is it? The only things that I would suggest would be to spread out the three pots, and to spread out the plant right behind them (is it Cabomba?). Other than that, I love it!

Re.: Photograph of my tank

Hello Geniusdudekiran and Quentin,

Many thanks for your replies!!!

Kiran, I will take your suggestion and set the pots apart. Yes, those plants behind the pots are green cobamba and red cobamba. The tank is 58.5 gallon made by wifey, kids and me at home out of 12 mm clear glass. The back glass is tinted brown glass. I would appreciate if you could identify the plant in the second photograph that i had attached in my first mail.

Quentin, I am attaching a full tank photograph for your review.

Best regards,

Sushil

personally i would move those pots apart as suggested, other than that its pretty good.

the plant you are asking about appears to be some sort of cryptocoryne or crypt for short.

I think it looks good, could maybe go for a piece of wood somewhere. That would be a nice touch.
