TBM's Planted 2gal Fluval Spec "Jungle Ruin Palace"

Hello,

I've been working on a planted Fluval Spec inspired by one of my favorite fables, Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book. Thought I'd post a few pics on the progression of my tank for my fellow planted tank enthusiasts. Here is how it's looking so far.

I want to know... just how did you do that with the stock light? Mine faded terribly after a couple months. Absolutely beautiful scape =)

Are you running any sort of C02? Looks great!

Thanks for the compliments. There is currently no CO2 running in the tank, but that may change eventually. The stock light has been running for bit over a month but I may be looking for an upgrade soon. The tank is placed right in front of a window, so there is natural sunlight supplementing the LED light. Most of the plants from this tank I put in from a larger planted tank that's growing out of control.

Very impressive, love these tiny tanks but can tell they're highly addictive. I still have a "want" list for my first 10G tank.

Currently using leftover Malaya Aqua Soil in this tank. It's a blend of the normal type and powder type versions. Basil, what is the name of that plant in your profile pic? I'd like to add it to this tank.

Nice tank. Always nice to use cuttings from another tank and make it look right.

Very nice! I really like the contrast the red plant in the back gives.

Thanks... I pressed moss against the back wall with a black mesh hoping to grow out a moss wall, but having 2nd thoughts about it because I'm starting to like the contrast on the black.... Decisions, decisions...

I don't think the red stems will stay red under the stock light :/
