Any type of caulerpa can take over fast so be aware. I got all my plants at live-plants.com. They have great portions for the price. Much cheaper than anywhere else I've found.
I really really like your aqua scape. I have a new tank and I want to make mine look similar to this. If you don't mind me asking, about how much did you spend on all of these plants algaes etc? My parents are getting me a bunch of stuff for Christmas. And will it be alright if I save this picture?

Oh thanks. It's always a pleasure to hear that I inspired someone. I got 9 macroalgaes, branching coralline, purple ribbon gorgonian, 20 ceriths & 15 nerite snails + shipping for $128. I wanted more, but I'm glad I didn't since its hard to fit it all. It's fine if you save the picture. I have more in my build thread.
(Sorry I don't mean to hijack this thread).
