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. Photo-0121.jpg Photo-0120.jpg
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? fern1.jpg fern2.jpg
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. broadleaf2.jpg
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. littleleaf1.jpg littleleaf2.jpg
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. treelike.jpg
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.
