Looks really beautiful! On your FB page, on your profile photos what are those round plants growing on your branches? Are those Moss balls? They are very pretty.

Question about the Baby Tears...can you grown them in regular gravel?

Thanks for sharing your pics! They are very nice looking! I am slowly getting up the nerve to try a planted aquarium. (Not with my tinfoil barbs, of course.) It is a little daunting to me. Yours makes it look worth it, though!

You might want to have a read of the 4-part article "A Basic Approach to the Natural Planted Aquarium" at the head of the Aquarium Plants section. Also, members can post photos of their tanks under "Aquarium Log" in the blue bar at the top, and you can see these by clicking "Aquariums" below their name on the left. There are several members with planted tanks so have a look at those for more ideas.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
