very nice growth the plants look real healthy.

u think you should cluster your stem together to open up the viewing area more. i also thin the vals would look good to the far left and the stems just after them.what other plants do u have?

Well. This tank actually started as a trimming grow out tank from my 20G. So everything in there has been taken in small pieces from my 20 or trim within it and replanted. Never really went for a nice clean look just kinda filled the tank. But lately i've been thinking about trying to make it look a little bit nicer. The tank has rotala, crypt spiralis, wendtii, java moss, and some brand of myriophyllum *spelling* The Myriophyllum was just severly hacked to death and it'll grow back in a week or so.

Actually is Crypt Spiralis in the back. Next time it needs trimmed up i may take you up on the pushing all the Rotala back and spreading out the java moss. Just never really thought of this tank as good looking. Just used to breed shrimp and grow out plants that i give to my LFS.
