What does $40 worth of java fern look like in a 5g?

About half the ferns in here, I put in today, and are eventually going in a tank I'm re-scaping for someone. Until then they have a home in my tank and in my photos.

40 bucks well-spent; it looks awesome! You should be able to make your money back soon by selling the off-sets. Take care and thanks for sharing.

Looks like my java jungle, but that is a 25 gallon tank.
-Aphyosemion

Two 1 GA desktops, a 5 gallon, a 2.5 gallon, a 10 gallon, a 20 gallon, a 25 gallon, and two 75 gallon tanks, all planted.
I am an expert on algae, so ask me if you have questions. I know how to grow it, just not how to get rid of it.

Ah, no it's temporary I'm afraid. The forty bucks worth are going to be planted in the customer's 55g this weekend. They're just sitting in here until then. So, yeah I'm going to be paid for my supplies of course.

Thats 40 bucks worth of java ????
Now I wish I still grew ferns... I could have retired from my day job selling mine at those prices.

For 40 dollars , you would not have been able to fit the amount of ferns and water in a 5 gallon tank... LOL

Actually, I didn't get ripped off or anything. It's stuck really densely together in that tank photo. I wouldn't scoff either-- I used those ferns to scape a 55g tank at a chinese restaurant and it turned out really nice. Photos later. They paid for all my expenses (including the ferns), gave me a free dinner, royal treatment anything I wanted, plus a nice $50 bucks for myself. It was pretty sweet.
