my "tree"

I just set up this "tree" in my tank ... isn't it nice? :) over the next few weeks I will see if the baby tears like being "leaves" on the tree if not I might replace with java moss. There are some guppies in there somewhere too but I guess they are hiding.

thanks!! :)
I want to fill it in a little more with a low-growing grasslike plant and some more "leaves" :) then i think it will be even prettier.

In that picture they were hiding... but here are a couple of pictures where you can (sort of) see the fish...


I have 4 adults and about 10 babies right now.
in the this pic look for the adult guppies in the lower left:

in this one you can see some babies near the water surface...

My camera is not that great, sorry ... I am just using photobooth on my macbook pro. it is pretty blurry

Here is an updated picture I just took today.

In the past week or so I made these changes
- added yeast/sugar CO2
- planted dwarf baby tears
- pruned the pearl grass and planted tips everywhere
- rearranged tree and rocks
- removed a lot of duckweed from the water surface
- added 2 yellow female fancy guppies (but one of them died last night :( ... sad)

Wow, that looks really cool. Where did you find the "tree"?

I love that design.
