Looking good, I'm quite jealous of all that empty space, there's no way I'm ever regaining control of mine!

Not too sure yet Gill, the amazon frogbit and hydrocotyle lucophela seem to be getting of to a good start, I may just use the frogbit as I like the roots they give too. Might give the hyacinth a try.
Thanks Morgan I'm really excited about this tank, more so about how I can get the riparium part added to.
Have added some rotala rotundafolia to it today which the cory fry absolutely love swimming through, most of the crypts have melted completely so will be a bit Before they pop back up but am on the look out for more and tennelus.
Quite like the very tall eleocharis which I may add at some point.
That is a brilliant tank Gill, with the Hydrocotyle as a floater it is the look I like.If you like the Idea of having a plant trailing down and around the outside of the tank. Do you remember I experimented with Hydrocytle varieties in the pipefish tank.
