TeutonJon78 - first planted tank

I had my Eclipse 12 setup with all fake stuff (except some real floating plants).

Decided I'd rather go all real, so I did. This is only temporary as I've got a 24g nanocube on order and a bunch of other plants waiting to go.

I bought a lot of low light plants because I wasn't quite planning on getting the new tank when I ordered them, but I like them because of nice big, green leaves. High light should only help.

Current setup: various anubias, some anacharis, broad leaf watersprite (floating), and a few pieces of hornwort. I also have some nice big river rocks and a bunch of driftwood (which is mostly still floating even though some of it's been soaking for months). No CO2 for this setup, but the 24g will get the DIY yeast that on my plant grow-out tank (which once the 24g comes, will get emptied).

Those are some very nice anubia's and should do well in lower light ranges. Great decision to go to real plants... more beauty, more fun !
Be sure to keep the anubia's rhyzome's out of the substrate and they will grow nicely for you. The one on the left is good but the small one in the center and ones on the right look just a tad to deep. Pull them up just a bit.
By the way... I really like that head in the center of the tank that you removed, its kinda kool looking in its own way !
I never thought I would say this but it would look good with them anub's !

I like the Tolmec head as well. In fact, I have one I place in my 20L grow out when I have an empty spot!

The Eclipse looks very nice! what type of Anubias are you growing?
