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.

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

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. :)
