Photo Caption: This is version 2 of my original planted tank, designed rather than evolved by accident. It's been running for 8 weeks now, the stem plant growth is out of control. I've used pool filter sand at the front, the cories seem to like it, red jasper rocks keep it seperate from the eco at the back.

20 gallons planted tank (mostly live plants and fish) - I've tried to go for a south american theme - fish wise anyway. There is a piece of bogwood running left to right, crypts at the front and vallis at the back.
