Very nice. Is that moss on the wood Fissidens?

I'm not sure on the other plant. Kind of looks familiar, but not exactly like anything I've seen really. I thought it might be an Aponogeton, but could be a crypt. What are shrimps? They don't look quite red enough for cherrys, they seem more spotty.

Thanks guys :)

Not sure if its a crypt or not. Clive sent it to me, so I'll send him a message next :lol:

Yes, moss of the wood is Fissidens. And yup, they're cherry's alright - about a month old I think. The adults are more deep red.

Thanks Mark :)

Much of the credit goes to Clive for the pics. He's pointing me in the right direction, and I'm chuffed to bits with the results :)

C4 armed and ready mate! :lol:

I think it is Fissidens Fontanus.

The tank is looking fantastic James. A beautiful layout with lush healthy plants.

Where are people getting this from?

Any websites that stock it?

Cant recall ever seeing it in any fish shops.

This past week I've suffered with no co2 due to delivery problems with Dan's courier company (again :rolleyes: ), and my plants have suffered big time. The thick lawn isn't so thick any more, p. helferi is deforming a little, hygro polysperma is riddled with holes, bacopa australis is melting badly, and my young rtl, and vivipara have melted totally :(

I added 7 otos and reduced the lighting hoping to prevent algae... so far so good, but I have just now noticed some bba in a dead spot under the spraybar. Another hole to be drilled tomorrow then :D The otos can be moved to the big tank should it get too crowded for them, after all, its only a 71 litre tank.

Since these pics were taken (tonight in fact), I've ripped up the back left and replanted what was left of the good stems... I also added 6 ember tetras from my main tank. If my shrimp population goes down, I'll know who is to blame :twisted: :lol: The right side back doesn't seem as bad, thankfully...
