Thanks. It's never too late to build a planted tank, right?

Your tanks are really cool. I'm a newbie at planting and would love to find out what plants are on your driftwood and how you attached them. I am beginning my planting experience with a 72g. I hope mine looks as nice!

Thank you the plants on the DW are java ferns. There's probably 10-15 pieces. I use super glue to attach them to the DW. Some people use fish line or cotton thread to attach plants but I don't like how it looks. So I decided to use super glue. I was advised here about that.

Thanks.

Its been raining for 6 days now and the tank didn't get any sunlight. The plants are in bad shape. I put some of the plants in the 55g and they bounced back. The tank is not cloudy or soupy though. Just didn't get any good lighting. It's going to be sunny this coming week. I hope the plants will get better. If not, I'll give it a try again this summer or if I'm sure that it's not going to be raining for that long.
