Here's what I managed with my one gallon (but I'm not in the competition of course). You can't see the HC or the HM in back since I only put little single stalks in the substrate. Weeping moss for foreground, some sorts of small stems in the back. That random white rock on top is holding down the christmas moss till it attaches.
Please PM me if you'd like to join in the competition so I can make a list.
Here's what I'd like to offer as the winning prize:
5 light green shrimp and a few mystery shrimp. I'll pay shipping.
Runner up gets a few mystery shrimp, shipping paid by me.
Must PM me by Monday (May 19th, by midnight) and post a picture of your newly planted ONE GALLON tank/jar/vase/tupperware/clear container.
Then in two weeks we post an update, and have votes open for three days (closes June 4th).
edit: Err, forgot to attach the pictures!
