    I too use photobucket. It sizes the picture for you and then I just copy the link as talldutchie does and paste it in the attachment section in the "go advanced" tab here.

    Wow... great looking tanks! On the 70g, in addition to the sword and micro sword, what are the other plants you have?

    Click the thumb nail and wait. The larger picture will show up behind the open thumb nail. It is worth waiting for trust me.

    Awesome tanks Kermit58! I mean awesome!

    That tank would look great with some live plants in it!

    Maybe your idea of a "love" tank is worth exploring. Oh wait... is that what they call a "breeder" tank?

    Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated. The point in posting was to show what one can achieve with a very basic and simple approach. No fancy substrates (both those tanks are Quikrete Play Sand which happens to replicate the Amazon sands], no added CO2 (gas or liquid), and no messing around "cleaning" the substrate.

    Plants. The two larger swords are Echinodorus major (far right in the back), and E. amazonicus/bleheri [which according to phylogenetic data is actually a variant of E. grisebachii). The substrate plants are Sagittaria subulata (the taller, far left and scattered around), Helanthium tenellum (the larger of the small plants) and a few Lilaeopsis brasiliensis which are managing better than I expected in this environment. Java Moss on the wood obviously. There are a couple of reddish-leaf sword variants that are struggling (light-related). Floating plants are Frogbit (thinner roots) and a couple Ceratopteris cornuta (Water Sprite, thicker root masses). I think that's it. This tank was set up this past March. Previously I had Flourite gravel and got fed up with it; plants were not better, and I couldn't keep corys in this tank because of the roughness of the Flourite. I did leave it alone for 2 years after setting it up, and the photo here shows what it was like before I tore it down and put in the sand. I thinned out the plants obviously. The previous photo was back in April, a month after I reset the tank; today the substrate plants have nearly covered the sand again.
