i think the drift wood will be the cherry on top.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

The plant arrangement is amazing. Nice work. I can't wait to see it as it "grows up".

What are the little bushy grassy plants (toward the mid-ground) with the stem poking up with little flowery dealy on the top? Roseshower was asking for suggestions for something bushy for her dp tank and i think it'd be a nice addition.

Got two more amazon puffers over the weekend! Driftwood is coming here soon! Got three BIG pieces off of ebay. Those plants are Narrowleaf Chainswords Steph. They're growing fast and I got runners sprouting up here and there.

Fast would be a understatement for this plant to say the least....Good thing you have a 75g and not a mini 55 like me

What you do with your Kleiner Sword there in the 2nd to last picture...doesn't look to fresh...That'll prop drop the outer yellow leaf's soon and have new nice & green one's growing from its center.

Yeah, I noticed that too...I pinched off that leaf and no more dead leaves have appeared. It might have been the major change from here water to mine...mine being really soft/acidic. I have the ferts under it now, so we'll see here soon if it gets any worse.

I doubt its gonna get worst. Some plants just simply handle shipping better then others. Plant them, let them establish root and get settled in and you'll soon see plenty new leaf's coming up

Your tank is looking awesome! I love that reddish plant too. It is going to be fun seeing it grow. There are so many of us recent plant converts on here now.
