no i have never used neddle leaf java but i agree it does look really good. that would look good nice and bushy with branchy driftwood coming out of it with moss on the wood, then something tall in back.
i still dont even know if i will set this tank up lol, the lighting is whats holding me back right now. the tank is 21 in tall so i need something really powerful to penetrate to the bottom. the stock strip is just a 17w bulb i think. idk how im gonna get that to work... i got a thread about it in the DIY section if anyone wants to chime in there
