Thanks you for the comment.

I went to the local fish store today. they had gotten in a very nice shipment of plants. I could not resist the temtation. So I bought some new plants. Ludwigia Ovalis and Myriophylum Tuberculatum. These new plants replaced my Ludwigia Glandulosa and my Rotala Wallichii. Here is a new pic of the tank with the new plants and a small trim.

Looks great Tetra! It is too bad to got rid of the grandulosa; it is one of my favorite red plants, and would have stood out in your tank. Very clean and healthy plants with great groupings!

What are some of the fish species in there? I take it that you don't have 90 different species! :D

Thanks for the link, Tetra! Those hummingbirds are pretty neat, and I'll have to do some more research on them. They do look more like a darter than a tetra, but I like fish with some personality!

You don't have any problems with them being aggressive towards each other or fish, do you?

Also, what are you using as your foreground in your tank? Is that the Hygro?
