Very beautiful. I don't think the plant on the far right is aquatic though.

Very nice.
The above post is correct. That White Ribbon plant is non-aquatic and will eventually die. I was fooled by this plant too, so don't feel bad.
Looks really nice though. I wouldn't mind seeing some pics after it's grown in.

Yes. It will eventually rot and mess up your water quality.
