Calling all tanks!

I just uploaded all my albums, and it gave me the idea to start a thread for anyone that wants to show off their established greenery. So show us what ya got!

No CO2 for this 75'er. Picture taken a couple weeks ago just utilizing 2 T12 GE ecolux plant bulbs. New bulbs just came in today and take one with my Coralife Aqualife 4x65w 10000k to brighten up the setup soon.

My underwater jungle - the foreground has been thinned out considerably since this was taken so you can actually see the gravel now, and I've also added some anubias nana to the driftwood and some rocks. Low light, no co2, no ferts other than fish poop.

10000K 4x65W Coralife Lighting - Floating watersprite giving off greenish glow on all the camera settings. I'm terrible with the camera and this is on "scenic" setting with brightness at it's lowest.

Looks like a perfect cardinal shrimp tank to me.

My tank isn't that pretty, but I do have a C. lutea I like showing. See if you can spot it. It was my first plant since getting back into aquariums early last year. I was never really able to grow plants as a kid.








I didn't trim all the rotala evenly last week, so it looks kind of weird. The ends you don't cut shoot out way ahead off the stems you do . I've been bored with this plant for awhile, but haven't figured out what to replace it with yet.

As always, I apologize for the crappy, blurry, off color cell phone pics.

Crypto, how tall is that 45 gallon? You don't have to measure, a guesstimate is fine. I love it!

SUNSTER - No co2 used. The new coralife lighting came after all the growth. Just used simple 2 T12 50w GE Ecolux plant/aquarium bulbs from Walmart ($5 each) & 1 stock 38w All Glass tank strip light.

Cryptocoryne - Did you use any co2 with the first pic (75 / 80 gallon)? I did not use on mine and certain plants such as the sprite, swords, ludwigia, rotalla grew nicely. I was thinking of doing pressurized but inhabitants would run out of room.
