    Cheers and yeah is a Juwel Back to Nature background. Just has a bit of algae on it at the moment which I would like to sort out.

    Thanks for the comment and no problem at all.

    Main carpeting is hair grass (lilaeopsis brasiliensis) and Riccia (Riccia fluitans)

    To the right on the bog wood is Windelov (Microsorum pteropus) [added day before the picture]

    I have a moss ball (Cladophora aegagropila)in there but you can't see it

    Vallisneria nana

    Christmas moss ( Vesicularia dubyana) [added the day before the picture ans not really visible in the pics. Its in the cracks of the background]

    Floating lilly type plant (Limnobium laevigatum)

    The background looks very good on your tank.

    Am I right in saying you've added rocks to increase the depth of the background? It works very well.

    Yeah I have added rocks to try and bring the background out into the tank so its less of a background and part of the tank.
