Stauro repens
Vallisneria spiralis
Brazilian pennywort ( floating)

It looks like a nice tank and a good start. I take it it is a relatively new tank so you should wait and watch to see if things continue to be good. Beware that plecos as they get larger like to munch on plants. If you start to see holes in leaves that look as though they are caused by wear then that's probably your culprit.

I think it looks great. I've got a female albino BN pleco in my 46 Bow and have never had an issue with her eating plants. I'm going to get her a partner today or Saturday

That tank really tied the room together

It been awhile so here's how it sits currently. It's a Cryptocorne covered stream bed which will eventually be turned to an Asian stream biotope once my 75 is running. Angels will move to the 75 along with the plecos , neons and corys. They ll be replaced with Asian species possibly Odessa barbs and danios. Been running now for two ish years.

Crypts are tropica, green and bronze wendtii, spiralis, undulata and a few miscellaneous. A few Anubias (African I know) and duckweed.

Fish are two paired Angels, neons, rasboras, corys, sae, and plecos. Thanks for lookin. Will be starting tank journals for my 29 ram tank, and upcoming apisto 20 and 75 community.
