Cool

Pretty proud of this one as this is my first aquascape. Rotala Hra at the right is a work in progress. I literally just put them there prior to taking the picture.

Plants in the Tank:

Rotala Hra
Cyperus Helferi
Alternanthera Reineckii
Hygrophila Corymbosa
Glossostigma

Disposable CO2 by ISTA (Too pricey imo but works like a champ!!)

I'm jealous! I've tried to rescape my 20 high three times now and I am still not happy. Your scape is awesome!

Hey thanks for the compliment! This tank has been running for 7 years actually. It looked terrible for most of the years its been running.I killed alot of ARs, Vals and other kinds of plants. So, I suggest you keep at it until youre satisfied. Good luck and happy scaping!

Looks great! I'm usually not a huge fan of floaters, but their coverage is beautiful with this scape. Love it

Yeah at first i didn't like the look of floaters but I feel like the carpet balances it out fine. I also chose Salvinia Minima since its roots doesnt grow for very long

Thanks for dropping by!

You did a beautiful job with that.

I agree the disposable CO2 canisters are more expensive than they're worth. If you're going to go long-term with CO2, a paintball cylinder and regulator would be a good option.
