Very Nice! Home for Happy Puffers!

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

Hi there

It's a 5lb CO2 bottle, 36watt PC light from ahsupply.com, plants are: Vals, Rotala Indica, Tiger Lotus, Money Wort, Ludwigia repens, some Crypts, one large sword and 4 smaller ones (can't remember which ones).

The carpet is a plant the LFS calls "Baby Tears", however I don't think that's the correct name as "Baby Tears" is another plant on most online sites. I honestly don't know what it really is. It's easy to grow and spreads quickly, though

Thanks for the compliments everyone!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the forground plant in your tank appears to be Hemianthus micranthemoides A.K.A pearl weed. I too, have been troubled by the pervasive use of "baby's tears" applied to anything pale green, stemmy with roundish leaves. Great pictures.
