Talking Torn down... set back up... new photos

Haven't updated the galleries since Nov. of '04, so thought it was time to do so since all the tanks have been torn town and set up again. There is a completely new tank in the mix, too. Hope y'all enjoy!

Nice pics. You need to tell us the size of each tank so that we get a better idea of scale and such.

Tank sizes:
Living room: 22 USG
Office: 17 USG
Guest room: 12 USG

Plants:
There are no plastic plants in any of the tanks. All plants are equatic. There's no Wisteria either --> Watersprite.

Thanks for looking!

no plastic eh? and the nice flowers in the "guest room" are real?
im just concerned that if they are not plastic, the plants in the office tank will die soon, because they are certainly NOT aquatic.
looks good though

The flower in the guest room tank is a Lotus. That is aquarium grade silk, not plastic.

As I said... ALL the plants are equatic in the office tank and there is no reason for them to die. Amazon Swords, Anubias, Red Rubin, Spotted Lotus, Water Sprite, fresh water ferns aren't equatic? Since when?

Ah, they're just messin' with ya. Lookin good. Those are the most broadly-divided watersprites I've seen...that's why it looks a lot like wisteria.

Re-boot!

by plastic i meant not live my bad. I have that same lotus in my 55 gallon, and it looks really nice. In the office tank, what is the white plant to the left? and what is the blue plant in the right? what about the yellow sword like plant?

Talking

Yeah, the Water Sprite plants vary in shape so much that you wouldn't think they were the same species from one to the next. It's a well known attributed of the plant. I have some with really big, wide leaves and others with tiny, fern-like leaves. Mind you, that happens on the same plant at times, too. Interesting plant to say the least. Doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to the variations either. It's nice, though, 'cause you can get diff't textures without using more species of plants.

Plants...
On the left: Freshwater Fern (yellowish plant, tan leaf tips)
"Blue" plant on the right: Lobelia (dark green leaves, slight purple tint to some leaf edges)
"Yellow sword-like plant": Red Rubin (rusty red with green highlights in leaves) --> assuming you were asking about the one in the back right corner of the photo

Thanks again for the comments! Hope I've covered the plant questions?
