Photo Caption:another one showing size diff, not the best quality picture, am not expecting high ratings on this one, but it gives a clarity to the size of the fish, the young red turquoise upfront is about 3.5 inches in lengh the blue diamond is just about double the size of the red turquoise

anubias nana several, several dwarf lilies, lace swords, moss balls, 2 mother amazon swords, many many babies from them, baby tears, dwarf baby tears, java fern, java moss, spiral crypts, red and green crypts, money wart, cabomba, cherry hedge, onion plants, several other misc plants, micro swords, fox tail red and green, no names for them, all totaled somewhere around 70 diff plants in my tank (not counting the baby swords) if i were to count them it would put me over 100 live plants in the tank. lol is the plant to gal ratio 1 plant per gallon? LOL ok sorry just had to do it.
About Yourself: I have switched from african and south american cichlids, to more docile fish, yes i know discus are cichlids, lol well i am more than just dabbling these days in planted aquariums, lol anything worth doing is worth doing right and with your foot to the floor so to speak, patience is key but don't be afraid once you have a properly cycled tank to add as many plants as you can properly sustain.
