Thanks Allaboutplants! My friend recently planted his 55 and I pruned the heck out of my tank to get him started.
Since I still have a lot of fast growing stem plants, it shouldn't be thin too long. Local availability of plants is a problem, therefore I'd like to get some ideas before ordering them.(I'm partial to Crypts..).
Getting into this hobby just a couple years ago, and into plants just 7 months ago, I have really concentrated my efforts on learning about plants, C02, etc, and not 'scaping.
I'm not sure what you mean by "theme". Do you mean bio-tope? My fish are Xenentodon Cancila "Gars" (Asian needle fish) and Hujeta "Gar". They are nervous fish and like floating plants for cover. That's the reason for the tall Vals at the left (there's a wall to the right). They can be startled easily and the Vals help a lot.
Thanks again for the constructive criticism! Also, I like driftwood. Would a "stumpy" peice of driftwood help?
