10G Brackish Water tank.

I just finished my BW tank for my 5 bumble bee gobies.
Salinity about 1003-1004.
Substrate: desert sand
Dead reef rock
Plants: Anubia coffefolia, Java fern, Java moss,Echinodorus tenellus,Valisneria nana and 2 species of unknown local BW plants collected from a brackish swamp.
Lighting: 11W pc lamp
Temperature 25*C
I like it because it is something different, easy to maintain and the little Gobies are great to watch !
Thanx 4 taking a look, hope you like it.

Very nice tank, reminds me when I had Bumblebees as a kid.

Some of the plants might not like the brackish conditions. On the other hand, there are some plants (left back corner) that look like Samolus valerandi, and if so they should grow just great, they even survive in saltwater.

Yes, it is Samolus valerandi !!
I cant thank you enough @ Wasserpest.
Never thought that the plant I collected from a swamp on a Greek Island would be the well known and traded S.valerandi.
Still missing the name for the other local plant at the right corner of the tank. Can you help?

That one I am not sure about. If the leaves were a bit rounder, I'd guess some sort of Hydrocotyle. Let it grow out a bit and post another good image of it later, someone might know. Although there are probably many plants from brackish water that don't make it in freshwater and therefore are unknown to the planted tank community.
