I know, your aquascaping is amazing! I am going to make it one day to your house to get the plants. It will be like a mini version of Byron's tanks :D

Thank you most sincerely kymmie. I am particularly pleased with the Amazonian riverscape; I have to admit that sitting in front of that aquarium is very rewarding. The Echinodorus macrophyllus at the left rear is 12 years old, and in the 90g it sent out a flower spike from which I have four daughter plants. Two of those are in the 115g, although they are still "buried" amongst the other plants, but in a month or two their leaves will be at the surface and the aquarium will have quite a different perspective. Also, the Echinodorus major plants on the left and left-centre will in time be as large as the plant in the right rear corner.

The SE Asian swamp is not really aquascaped yet, I just put the bits of wood in and lined the walls with wisteria to get it growing (which it certainly is, even considering my low light) and I'm waiting for some Nuphar plants, the red tiger lilies, to get in and really arrange things.

Byron.

I've had really good luck with the mopani driftwood from Dr. Foster and Smith. You can't pick out what you want so it's not the greatest but I've been pleasantly surprised with what I've bought of it. It's nice and dark in color, very hard, very heavy. If you ask my fiddler crab who makes one piece of it her home I'm sure she would tell you it's pretty awesome. :P
