It looks good, just a few more plants. Perhaps more Microsorum pteropus?

Thank you for looking and kind words...

Some close-up pictures, a month ago..

Marsilea sp. already started to produce runners. I think my Marsilea sp. is actually Marsilea sp. hirsuta.


Added 8 Yamatos.


Another Yamatos close-up, yup, I swear, my Marsilea sp. is pearling!..


Yamato vs Oto?


Flame moss


Another close-up of the flame moss on the 'arm'


A close-up at the base.


A close-up of Cryptocoryne wendtii 'brown'.


A close-up of Microsorum pteropus 'Philippine'


Echinodorus rubin 'narrow leaf'

Tis beautiful, but maybe you should take out that sword on the right? Doesn't seem fitting alone. Perhaps add more plants if you're gonna make the right side more active.

Be daring and bring the Echinodorus rubin to the foreground.

I like the sword in that spot. It will look better once filled in.

Nice setup with the flame moss, that should fill in even more.

Look forward to seeing this grow in two more months.

awesome work on the planting at the second day. that kind of work need dedication. great job man... really.

i have marsilea in my 10 gallon tank. seeing yours make me want to throw out my BBA infested HC and dying glosso out. i like this plant. while others are struggling it's growing slowly but sure without problem at all in the same condition.

how much is your light?

Nice close ups.

Marsilea Hirsuta produces two, three, and four-lobed leaves, and sometimes one lobed.

Marsilea minuta produces single lobed leaves exclusively, at least according to some websites. Info on minuta seems to be sketchy.

Nice tank.
My one suggestion, leave it alone, and see how that sword looks when it fills in, then decide if you want to keep it or take it out.

Ditto that. But all around, wow! Looks great! Very clean and very strong contrasts.

wow that''s a lot of light... explains the growth. do you have problems with marsilea because of that much light? it's described as a low light plant right.
