Fluval Chi re-do

Took the betta out of the Chi and redid it into a shrimp tank. Added a few low maintenance plants, driftwood, and that was about it.

The plants in the back are ludwigia arcuata, and another ludwigia hybrid, foreground is marsilea with a little bit of süßwassertang on the front right side. The java moss on the driftwood is naturally growing, it attached itself after a few months of creeping along the substrate. There's a little bit of clado on there as well.

I'm going to probably mess with it a bit more and get some better lighting and pictures but heres the preliminary.

and one more with extra lighting from behind.

thanks I'm looking around for a plant to put in the top. Maybe some kind of hanging plant, I just want something low light since the tank isn't in any direct sunlight.

I love the reds and blacks together too. I've always wanted to do that. Don't they make ugly hybrids though? Do you just cull them?

No, they come out either red or black, they don't get mottled. They are all the same species just different strains, but however the genetics go, it works out to where they don't ever come out as a mix between the two.
