Hey! I just got my plants Algenco today in the mail (thanks!!!! :19:), and I just put them all in the tank. I'm not sure if I did everything correctly, and my Java Moss looks a little silly to me. lol I've taken some pictures (that are attached) Does it look okay?

Plants included:
Java Fern (on the very far right)
Java Moss (on the cave, tied with a string)
Amazon Sword (It's on the left hand side of the jar)
Wisteria (some on the right side of the cave thing, and then in the far left corner, also some in the very back under the gravel - Algenco said to put it there b/c it had roots coming out, and it'll grow...)
Ludwiga (in the front middle, to the right some)
And I got some Amazon Sword form PetSmart the other day, but it looks very different from what Algenco sent me. It's on the very far left)

Does this look okay? Do I need to move anything around? Let me know!!! Honest opinions please! Thanks

Would love to see the photos...

I received Java Moss from Algenco with my RCS I bought and it looks weird at first. Once it anchors itself and starts growing it looks better. My shrimp LOVE it.

lol Yep, I'm a smart one, eh? I completely forgot to add the pictures, which is something I do often. Here they are for real!!! I tried to get them from different angles. First is right on, the other is looking down.

EDIT: You can't really see the java moss in the first picture because of my black background. It's there though! On the cave thing in the left hand part of the aquarium.

Well, Algenco just replied to my message and said that I laid it out okay. My danios seem to like it - they're swimming all through the plants. Hopefully my gourami will like it too!!

Just remember that ludwigia, wisteria, and maybe even the swords need 3 watts per gallon of light or more. The swords need tablet ferts, all need liquid ferts, and all but the java fern and moss need CO2. But it is VERY nice!

My most intense lighting is 2 wpg and I grow all those plants very well

Thanks! I used to have one of the older looking, green colored jars, but I couldn't find it when I was setting up my tank. I reckon this works though!
