Those are good plant ideas; the long thin leaves of the Vallisneria and swords will complement the wood. That I believe will look quite nice. And I like the "boulder" look too.

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]

Thanks Byron. Looking at 6 italian vals. (back right corner) 5 stems giant hygrophila (background between 2 rock mounds), 5 stems brazilian pennywort (really like this stuff, could wrap some around a branch, float it plant it), 3 java ferns (2 on the left rock pile trapped branches, and 1 around one of the rocks in the second pile) and a dwarf lilly (just left of the bend in the longer branch in the front.

Then I will get some frogbit for a floater and some pygmy chain sword/dwarf sag for my foreground.

Finally have a plan......I think haha. Think that is a good number of plants? Need more?

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)

Finally got my lights made! 4 15 watt daylight 6500K CFLs. I know, not the most effective but budget friendly.





Filter and root tabs will be shipping hopefully tomorrow, then I will place my order for plants! Getting Pumped!

The tank is looking good so far. I really like how you got the branch "stuck" in the rocks!
