Looks real nice. I can't wait to see it when it clears up and the plants fill in. What kind of rock did you use?

Looking nice. You might want to get some round leafed plants in there.

I do seem to go for the pointy skinny leaves don't I?

Any suggestions on where and what?

I do have some Ranunculus inundatus on it's way from Robert for the foreground on the right i think.

If you like reds, there's Ludwiga repens, rotala macrandra, bacopa colorata. The different types of anubias are nice, tall and short, big and small.... There are also crypts with rounded edges. Take a look at the plant finder.

You might want to change out your actinic bulbs. They don't do a lot for plants.
