finally! 20L planted

I finally figured out how to take a full tank shot without it being washed out or blurry. soo... enjoy!! the back is all filled in with wysteria, which is one of my new favorites. the rest of the back fill is red ludwigia and some ambulia. the center piece is a trimmed red tiger lotus, flanked by two amazon swords, and surrounded by some micro sword. Honorable mention goes to the little stick of driftwood in the middle with the java moss bunch. keeping the plants company are a bunch of female bettas, two german blue rams, and some peppered cories.

enjoy!

I like the plants... but are you having a bacterial bloom or something? What's with the cloudiness?

Once that algae bloom clears your tank is going to look fantastic! I like your plant selection. I don't think there's a better looking plant than a Red Tiger Lotus. :)

NICE that's well planted as it is, let these plants have some growing time and that tank will be solid thick green :-) I'd not worry about the bloom, they always seem to vanish one day just over night once everything is settled in there :-)
