Hi

I have been running a little 7.5 gallon planted cube for a while now but it was time to upgrade so i have bought a 4 ft 68 gallon tank. I have been looking for inspiration for the tank and I came across this picture. Can some of you plant guru's please help ID these plants so I can find and buy them.:smile2:

In the foregrounds it's mostly :glosso or marshilia, styrogyne repens, blyxa japonica(grassy plant)

Some anubias at the front of the wood.

Background is mostly crypts in the middle perhaps apanogetifolia at the middle and balansae on the sides

At the back there's tonnes of Java Fern and I think the bushy plant is Limnophila aromatica which is not growing under conditions to make it coloured, but I'm not 100% on that one.

Does that just mean a shortage of iron so it stays green?

Many factors can affect colour such as Iron dosage, Nitrogen dosage, colour of light and intensity of light. I've not had Limnophila aromatica before so I'm not quite sure how the colour was achieved.

It's a look like Limnophila aquatica. known commonly as the giant ambulia, is a plant belonging to the family Plantaginaceae. Limnophila aquatica grows naturally in Asia, Sri Lanka and India and is characterised by its fine leaves and bushy, pine-like appearance.
