Planted community tank pics

I have slowly been adding live plants to my community tank. Currently have about 2 dozen plants in the tank (everything is real except that plant bed on the left... the plants coming out of it are real though) Never did a planted tank before... was inspired by a certain poster here and his awesome planted tanks.

Just have to wait for some of this stuff to grow in a little bit. Still planning on adding a few more plants to fill some of the open spots.

Yowsa, your tank looks great. I can't get over the blueness of your blue diamond. Very nice specimen.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Your tank is absolutely STUNNING!!! Your fish are all gorgeous too, I especially love the discus!

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

My current stocking is a bit much for a 55 gallon long term though. The plan is to move the discus and angels to a 125 gallon after we move to the new house (and add a couple of more discus at that time).

Thanks for the compliment. I love that blue diamond too. :)
