wow.... Even more impressive then. As much as I like the idea of a well planted tank I think I'll follow your example of synthetic plants with one or two real plants to start with, given my knowledge and experience of plants (and co2) tanks is limited, and replace out with real plants on an on-going basis.

Are there any plants that you would recommend that would look somewhat lifelike? Ive had issues in the past where I have bought long stemmed grass that fish would get caught in between stems.

Cool, I'm sure you'll like it. The very large plants going up the back/sides and across the top of the tank as cover are Tetra products. Tetra Water Wonders Hygrophila 24". Less than five bucks each.

Wow that's incredible I love real planted tanks but I don't have the time to maintain one right now.

They decided to behave for a group shot.

At this point their colors are very strong. Beautiful fish.
