Well tell what you have going there ie equipment, etc.
Nice! Overall I really like the tank.

If you don't mind me saying, I don't like how uniform the front row of plants appears. And the relation to the wood gives the appearance of a hedge around the front of a yard. But it's a small gripe and I really like the tank!
Nice work!
Nice work I love the tank. Its really amazing.
Is that anacharis in the right back side? If so that's one of the best arrangements of that plant I've seen. I hope I can do something similar with mine!
I like your tank!
The hm looks like it's growing in a rectangle! Are you a military officer and you control your plants' growth?
Casty, I think the plant you are inquiring about is Rotala Indica.

Fishman, tank looks excellent. I especially like the effect the background has on the overall scape.
Thanks for all of the kind comments! The plant in the far right is Ammania senegalensis (allegedly). The plant just to the left of the stump is R. indica.
