I have to say, I think pennywort actually looks better as a partially-emersed bog plant than it does as a fully submerged aquatic - very good choice on your part! You seem to have really mastered the art of finding diverse approaches to ten gallon tanks, thus providing great inspiration to those of us on more limited budgets ... and, of course, your bigger tanks are nice as well!
