Looks great thumbs2: . What are those two redder-looking plants in there? I was looking for something similar for my tank. Also, what's your tank size and stocking?

Nice! I can never keep stem plants.. my lighting is not very good and I dont like trimming very much :D

My current stocking is....

1 - Crown tail betta
6 - Threadfin tetras
4 - Otto's
2 - SAE
1 - Bumble Bee Goby
5 - Olive nerite snailes
?? - handfuls of snails (don't think they are MTS or ramshorn) but they clean algae really well and I haven't noticed any of them eating my plants so I've let them spread in there.

The red plants that I have I'm not exactly sure of... I know one is a red nassea, and the other one is some type of ludwiga or rotalla. I bought them in Long Island and drove them home.

I will look them up and post exactly what they are later tonight. I know the purple spikey looking plant is a Limnophila Hippuroides.

Eventually I will have discus in my tank. When i moved about 4 months ago I had to leave all my discus with my brother in St. Louis :( so I am on the hunt for some nice new guys. Most likely stock 5 or 6, 2-3 inchers. I have alot of substrate for the plants so I'm assuming I have about 65 gallons of swimming space and the tank is setup just for them. I've heard of people adding more than that amount of discus with the given space I have but I don't want to push it.

Looks like Limnophila hippuroides to me.

Wow, that tank is AMAZING!!! I have always admired people who care for live aquatic plants, as I can't seem to keep them alive for more than a few weeks.
