It is lovely. What is the big red/green plant in the right corner I really like it?

Thank you Calm, the plant in question is either Echinodorus x barthii, Echinodorus osiris, Echinodorus 'Rosť' or Echinodorus 'Red Diamond' They are all very similar and any of these will get you the results that you see in the one in my tank with enough nutrients and high light. Although I am betting its the first one, the Barthii, because the description fits the one I have perfectly...."The leaves change colour from dark-red in the youngest leaves to dark-green in the oldest."

At some point I will get a chart written up with all the plants in. Though I might need some help with some of them, I tend to get all excited when I buy new plants and end up throwing the name tag away with all the rubbish!

I managed to sort out covering the bottom of the bog wood without buying any more plants and I think it looks ok, can you tell me if it ruins the flow or not please?

I basically just moved the anubias out of hiding and put it in front of the bog wood instead.

Glad you are getting one of those plants Calm, they are really nice arent they?
