What filter are you using? Your water looks clean! Some how my marineland 100 does not polish my water very well..

Do you perform a water change before you took that picture?? Is your water crystal clear?

That's a nice looking piece of wood. You'll get stronger impact from it if you put it slightly off center (about 1/3 to 40% from the end).

Your plants look nice and healthy. They'll look fuller if you group like plants together rather than spreading single stems of each around the tank.

Lol did you get that piece of manzanita from SeaScape? I went down there last week, and was browsing through their selection, and could have sworn that I passed over that specimen.

I also agree that you might want to consider shifting that piece of wood and grouping your stem plants to make things a little bushier. Oh, and what species of fish do you have in there? All I can see is a blur. Great start!!!

Hey,
I did a water change about 3 hours prior but that is usually how the water always looks. Ive noticed if you get a filter that is designed for a bigger tank the water always loks much better. i was thinking that the plants would look better together as well. I will chnge it up a little bit and post more pictures. Thanks for all you advice keep posting!

Uriah Heep, The floating plants are called Salvinia minima. The have little hairs on the leafs. I got them from Jubs. he will probably sell you a handful if you PM him.

Cheryl and agrippa, Thanks for the suggestion about the plant grouping and the driftwood. i will do something with it.

Agrippa, Thats awesome that you live in the Springs too. Nice to know someone else into planted tanks lives around here. I would be interested in trading you some of my plants for yours. We probably have the same stuff though since seascape doesn't have that many good plants. The fish that i have in here are 2 german rams, 2 ottos, couple of ghost shrimp, and 2 Pinocchio shrimp. PM me if you want to trade. BTW whats manzanita? lol..

It's a type of wood. Looks great in a planted tank IMO.

I am not sure what kind of wood it is... I just got a piece of "driftwood" out of my grandparents yard.
