60 Gallon Amazon Sword Tank



Planted tank at three months old. The fore ground still needs to grow in and some plant adjustment as things grow in. I'm trying to keep the tank simple. No CO2 yet, but I'm thinking about it. My angelfish were eating my plants and had to go.

55watt X 3 Compact fluorescent, Flourish Excel and dosing of various other stuff.

Ozelot sword
melon sword
ruffled swords
Rose sword
Oriental sword
bacopa
anubias - varoius types
crypt lucens
Hygrophila
crypt Wendtii tropicana
Rotala rotundifolia
Ludwigia palustris
peacock moss

5 Rathbuns Blood Fin Tetra - 6 Flame Tetra - 12 Otocinclus - 8 Swartz Corries

A very nice and clean looking tank! Your rotala looks incredible. Did you just replant the tops before you took the pic?

I just got some cuttings from a friend. They were much shorter than I thought so I decided to use them as a fore ground plant until it grows out. I plan on moving the grown rolata behind the driftwood and put some Blyxa japonica in that spot. It's to bad rolata doesn't stay that short, it looks real good up front.
