Couldn't agree more. I have two little planted 6 gals and they are a piece of cake and look pretty good, IMHO.

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

As the plants establish themselves (as we were discussing in our PM's Frank) this is going to be a lovely aquarium. The fish are beautiful. Nice work, very.

Raising plants from seed is not an easy task. I remember an earlier thread where one of the members was trying this with aponogeton's I think. He had the seeds from his aquarium plants. I can't remember if he had success or not.

Buying the small plants can be expensive depending upon stores, online, etc., but the plants will generally establish themselves and some reproduce quite readily vwegetatively with daughter plants from runners, flower spikes or the leaves depending upon the species.

Very nice tank. I set my newest tank up(20 gallon) as a planted tank with alot of help from Byron and it is doing wonderfully. Everything is growing great and the few fish in there seem to be very happy. I love the way the real plants look and plan on turning all my tanks into planted ones eventually.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.
