New scapes

I decided to redo the scape of my 5gallon and 10gallon land/water tank.

I decided to take out the hardscape so I can get the maximum growth possible for the close to 40 stems of asian ambulia I have in there. I also split up my crypt wendtii ‘tropica’ and hopefully I can get some good growth out of that too. I also split up rosé sword and put them at the back corners of the tank. There are also some small amazon swords in the tank which I am trying to grow a little bigger for my 50gallon. Hopefully more light will help them along. For the forground I have some stargrass which I plan on eventually giving to some people in my aquarium society and getting some glosso. Before you know it, you will not be able to see my background, the asian ambulia grows SOOOOO fast, and is quite beautiful under high light.

Here are some pics of the 5gallon:

The swords


10gallon land/water newt tank

Here is Wrigley the newt’s tank. I decided it was time for a more natural look. So I got some rock and put the driftwood from my 5gal in here. I also made a little water feature and added some plants to root. I found these cool sticks too.

Here are the pics:

Hope you enjoy!

Very impressive, I have some difficulties with plants that I've been trying to work through. I love the water feature in the newt tank.
