I was trying to find out the same thing think they would look cool in my ten gallon tanks.
I believe we're talking about the driftwood type of bonsai trees used for aquascaping using aquatic moss to mimic terrestrial trees.You can find "bonsai trees" just about anywhere, even some grocery/outlet stores. It isn't really a type of plant...it is the practice/art of how you keep it. You could literally go into your back yard and take a cutting or sapling (not all species are suited necessarily) and grow it in a small container and meticulously trim and shape it and call it a bonsai.
The expensive ones are likely special species or types and may already be many years old with a lot of work put into keeping and maintaining it.
Where can i get a Bonsai tree, similar to the one a guy was selling in the for sale section. But his is expensive. What do i search for when trying to get it.
I do not really want one made up of a bunch of twigs.
Cool looking tank, when they grow in they are going to be really neat. I think that the rocks may be too large, they take away from the trees and mess with the scale of things. The roots make a nice cave for your apisto I see. I'd say we have similar taste in plants. Correct me if I'm wrong but I see:Here's what I've got so far. The scape in my tank is new as well, as I just did a complete tank tear down a couple of week ago so it's a work in progress.
Thanks, yes the first two plants you are correct but the last is Aponogeton madagascariensis. I hope the Crinum makes it. When I did my tank tear down I discovered the Aponogeton had split into two bulbs and the Crinum had split into three plants. I sold the duplicate plants locally as they were large and shipping would have been an issue possibly. I've got some browning of the tips of the Crinum's leaves but I'm now starting to get some new growth so I think it's just transplant shock.Cool looking tank, when they grow in they are going to be really neat.

-Vesuvius (Echinodorus angustifolia)
I have the same plants in my new apisto setup. My Crinum is not adapting all that well. The bulb of my plant is so large it was sticking out of the substrate too far. I added more aqua soil over the bulb today hopefully that helps. It keeps giving off big bubbles that smell terrible. How does it grow for you, initially?
