Very nice! That's an interesting piece of driftwood. I like the anubias by the rock and the crypts look nice and big.

Thanks Pitt and An t-iasg, The big crypt came from fish n fries, and there are some small swords that are starting to fill in the back of the tank that came from happygirl, there kind of hard to see.

I have a question do you guys and gals think my plants would grow faster and better in pool filter sand?

Feel free to make suggestions on arrangement of stuff.

Thanks Tess

Ithink your growth will be the same in pfs, but if you just add some root tabs (if you haven't already) it will help the swords.

You might also notice that everything goes along ok, and then wham...growth takes off....that always happens to me once I get everything settled in and get the ferts and pwc down.

Your tank is looking great! Nice work!

That looks like nice gravel - the color is nice and the pieces aren't too big. Crypts may not do well in sand. I agree with happygirl that the swords, and crypts, need some root tabs under them.

I have root tabs I added them about a month ago. My gravel is something they call sand blasting gravel it was in the tank when I got it.

You can never have to many pics, do not apologize! Very nice indeed! Love the driftwood, plant are laid out nice as well. All I can suggest is maybe throw a background on there, nice work!

The tank looks great. It should fill in nicely. I have a ton of crypts and for me they are easy, strangely enough, I have a terrible time growing java fern.

Thanks guys and gals, yall have been very kind
Anne I am not convinced yet that all of my plants will grow very much for me except the crypts and the java fern I have some Java moss that dosen't seem to want to grow for me at all.
