finally! 20L planted

I finally figured out how to take a full tank shot without it being washed out or blurry. soo... enjoy!! the back is all filled in with wysteria, which is one of my new favorites. the rest of the back fill is red ludwigia and some ambulia. the center piece is a trimmed red tiger lotus, flanked by two amazon swords, and surrounded by some micro sword. Honorable mention goes to the little stick of driftwood in the middle with the java moss bunch. keeping the plants company are a bunch of female bettas, two german blue rams, and some peppered cories.

enjoy!

I like the plants... but are you having a bacterial bloom or something? What's with the cloudiness?

Once that algae bloom clears your tank is going to look fantastic! I like your plant selection. I don't think there's a better looking plant than a Red Tiger Lotus. :)

theres a post about it in the plants section. its slowly going away with normal dosing of excel, so im thinking i need to lower the lighting again. my poor 55g looks like I put fish and plants in skim milk lol im working on it! its the best its been in many weeks

NICE that's well planted as it is, let these plants have some growing time and that tank will be solid thick green I'd not worry about the bloom, they always seem to vanish one day just over night once everything is settled in there
