Pretty little thing! I hope he likes his new home :) He needs some meat on his bones - keep an eye on that concave tummy and make sure it fills in over the next month or so. . .

It's a beautiful planted tank, an aqua scape has more in depth characteristics. Like cliffs, grass hills, a forest look, or a layered format. Yours is a great planted one level setup, and your pick in plants are perfect but none the less its a planted tank not an aqua scape. Google it you will see the difference.

I change my tank around a lot, I put a lot of thought into this one and a lot of time so I'm not changing anymore, Unless its adding more Cabombas to carpet and Wisteria.

Amazon Sword
Green Cabomba
Java Moss

20 Gallon High
Dirted Tank

12 Harlequin Rasboras
1 Male Betta
4 Bronz Corys

If you want a grass like plant that will give you a grassy field look, find some lileopsis.

Wow! Outstanding! I love the plant choices. If that were my tank the only, and I mean only change I would make would be to replace the plastic deco with natural driftwood. I like the natural look though.

Thanks for caring, unfortunately this tank went to hell it's doing pretty bad, I recently ordered some hygrophilia corymbosa and java fern a few weeks ago, By now all of the hygro's died from an unknown reason, The stems turned weak and black. The Java fern is doing great however I see lots of new growth.
I'm going to start a new tank, 20 gal long with soil and gravel but I'm gonna use flourite this time and get new bulbs as well as fertilizers, All I have right now is Flourish Comprehensive and Excell.

Also, The ram died while being treated for ich. I felt the effects of not having a quarantine tank and my whole tank got infected so I had to take him out and treat him. Most of my cabombas and wisterias died from being trimmed too much because I changed the layout every week :S now that I learned from these newbie mistakes I'm gonna start fresh with the 20 long, I also recently got hired at aquarium store right on my block so that will open new doors for me. :D Thanks again for the inquiry.

if you want a ground cover you can use Glossostigma, or dwarf hair grass, limnophila aromatia, Pogostemon helferi. Check out this site it might help you www.aqmagic.com
