Updated pics.

Just took these. Added that piece of DW that goes right to the top of the water. I glued all Anubias to it and I added 2 more mats of java fern at the bottom. Hope you like it.

Enjoy the pictures!

The DW looks sooo good! It looks so great how you have made many separate pieces of driftwood look like one.

Also, the taller plants in the front look good too, im not sure if you have had them there before, but they look good.

Are you going for a java fern carpet?

I'd like to! The plants in front are all new. I wanna get another few mats of java fern maybe this weekend.

And thanks I tried real hard to make all the pieces fit so it looked like one huge piece.

Thanks again!!!

Yes i could have sworn they were new!! Java ferns?

The java moss will look great. Youll have a densly planted chiclid tank!

I liked to. And yes lol I'm confused. Your right. Those are java ferns. The LFS had huge carpets of them. But I'm thinking of the java moss also. I wonder if it would look good.

I think some carpets would look great. With your great lights, you could do other things too, like dwarf baby tears

You know me!! lol, I'm gonna do it!! my only concern is I'm overstocked so when they start getting big I may have to re home some. I have about 36 total,not including the synodontis and loaches.

I agree, I like the carpet look. Im pretty sure mbuna will eat dwarf baby tears though. What different plants do you have in there currently?
