It looks a little too fake in my opinion, but all in all it gives a nice idea about how it looks in my living room.

You're welcome! I still think I loose more compared to an external filter. But having a sump with a reactor to dissolve CO2, or an open tank with an external filter and a diffusor, I don't know. I think the loss from a diffusor is larger than the loss from a sump.
About the Aponogeton, these are in my tank for over 1,5 year. I got three species, and I've had Ceratopteris and other plants that should go dormant in my tanks for years as well. I don't see how a plant could now it should go dormant in our tanks as long as you keep all water parameters the same all year round. I feel the trigger is missing although I don't even know what the trigger is. Perhaps temperature or the amount of light in nature. But does anybody ever experienced this is an aquarium? And even if it does one day, that's ok, as long as it isn't the day before a contest or something:P
