:D thanks izzy!
I swear if i ever do bettas againt it will be a plakat too!

I'm testin the humidity in the tank with an open top right now and whether my emmersed grown plants have adapted to it....
so in this tank is some hydrocotyle tripartita and persicaria kawagoeanum from my terraium. they both seem to be doing well after 24 hours! no drying up and stuff!
Later on i think I'll do anubias or buces :) we'll see... like i said. I'm reallly in no rush ^_^ just excited to slowly scape (or try to) again~ and enjoying the process <3





ooohh I would like to mention tht I need lots of pond snails!!!! if anyone is willing to spare... 1or 2.... or 50....

Ohhhh!! I am so excited to see how this newest tank progresses. I might be really tempted to try something like this next time I set up a tank if yours goes well. Are you getting buce fever now, too?

Give into the allure of Buces! Not that you need them to make nice scapes, I just want someone else to keep them too.

Your Plakat is SOOOOOOOO PRETTY! *swoooons* I luff him ^.^

I hope the King is happy in his new home - dunno if chillin' in the corner = happiness to a fish, but I can't imagine that he'd be miserable in a gorgeous tank like that one o.O

The 1g looks GREAT! Contrary to popular belief, one can NEVER have TOO MUCH Riccia! Love, love, LOVE that plant! Your mossy rock is drool-worthy, too! Can't have too much moss, either, I think. . . *giggle*

I'm super excited to see your newest tank (slowly) develop, too - so far everything looks to be going brilliantly! Keep up the good work, Kitty - your scapes are always so pretty!!! I'm sure this will be nothing short of a masterpiece when it's finished!

Updates! This is what I call the ugly stage. In the Ugly stage I'm just happy that the plants grow. Those P. Kawageanum stems are the biggest weeds I've ever seen. They mustve shot atleast 2in since I plopped them in. Two feeder endlers are in the tank to help the system along :)





The drift wood kept tannifying the water, I plopped a bag of purigen in, but it seems to be in need of a recharge soon :P

Putting stuff in, taking stuff out :D



I also had algae I really liked... but the nerite proceeded to clear it all for me o_O

Crypts come in so many sizes and shapes and hair grass sounds pernickety.

I vote for crypts.

I'm not limited to just these two plants XD I'm open to basically any rosette or rhizome plant :3

Im going to stick to the persicaria in the back :) I'm definitely going to order some c. petchii... but I'm thinking about leaving that emmersed as well :)

I don't think I vote crypts well unless it was like parva, petchii, or wendtii green gecko. The rest would just get big enough to ruin the look. I like the Anubias idea.
