75 gallon hard scape/ journal.

Hey guys just wanted get your thoughts on my new tank. comment both good and bad are apreciated. im getting more glosso for the left side of the tank and a couple things here and there. but mainly start to get the tank really growing so i can see what i want to do with it. like the rotala indica on the left ( really small ) the combomba broad leaf ludwiga and water westeria. oh and also the jungle vlas. here they are enjoy.

my first picture is kinda cummey im still get used to my cyber shot. so plz forgive my camera skills. http://photobucket.com/albums/e335/a...t=DSC00204.jpg

my second is a bit better just a photo of the main foal point which I will try and get as dense as possible.

and my third is my glosso its is growing in pretty well already acouple new guys. I do have a question about them. they seem to not root in they grow above the substrate. or will they eventually anchor themselfs down? ill get a pic of that. here is a pic of that and a overview of the glosso

http://photobucket.com/albums/e335/aceracer12/?sc=1 there is a the whole thing if you want to see it. you can see pretty well what i mean about the runner not being under the gravel kinda staying at the top. So plz let me know if I am wrong.

Your glosso is growing fine. It is normal for the runner to stay on top of the substrate. Only the root will go into the substrate.

The tank looks good but I think you are walking the line of too few plants. You will probably be OK though.
