I've also tried to update my aquarium link until my avatar but can't seem to work out how it's done? I've realised I've put 120 gallons as the tank size instead of litres *facepalm*

Also, do you know of a good site for identifying aquarium plants? I have a few that look very different to any other I have had or seen before and wouldn't mind finding out a little more about them. It would be wretched bad luck if I found out they happen to be the only aquatic plants you can buy that eat you while you sleep.

Woot! I have pictures :)

Firstly I thought I'd show you guys and girls what it is you helped create over the last few weeks. These are taken with a camera phone and by my unsteady hand so apologies now for the shakiness of them.

So... here is the tank.

I'd like some help identifying the following plants too if you can, some help on their care would be great as well.

This ferny thing looks very *very* dark. It's almost black and doesn't seem to enjoy having pictures taken of it. It looks almost exactly like a land based fern only the leaves seem darker. Any ideas?

This plant seems to have gone downhill a little since I planted it a few days back, one of the leaves at the back has gone a bit yellowy and started to decay. I am going to prune it back this evening.

This seems very similar to the one above it, perhaps a different type but in the same family? The leaves are small but the colour almost identical, it too has gone more yellow since I put it in the tank though, could it be the tube I'm using that glows like this? I'm getting a plant friendly one this weekend.

And finally this little beauty, I fell in love with how odd this plant looked in the shop. It was the only one of its type and has started to spread its wings a little over the last 3 days. I hope that's a good sign. It's gone a slightly darker green but still has a slightly whitish edge to the leaves.

Anyway. I hope you can see the tank without squinting and can enjoy it without eye strain. If anyone has any ideas what plants these might be, I'll send you an e-hug and a picture of a duck or something.
