    I started off with cabomba and anacharis. The two together do great under most light to out-compete most algae. I added two crypts to the foreground. There is also java fern on some of the wood and the largest plant is the red tiger lotus. I now have 11or so 8-10 in. lily pads on top of the tank and my cabomba is constantly flowering under the LEDs.

    Wow I think the tank looks fantastic! I'm currently in the process of setting up a 135 gallon Discus tank and was really worried about planting it so mostly did manzanita branches with java fern & anubias attached and a potted amazon sword. I'm glad to know your banana plant is doing well, would like to try one or two myself.

    Do you find it difficult to clean with all the plants? Again, with the Discus that is one of my concerns. Really glad to have found this thread you should start a journal so we can track your progress and learn a few things along the way.

    So the plant in the tank is a Red tiger Lotus, not the banana plant. I ended up removing the banana plant a while ago. I don't have many problems with cleaning the tank. The plants' roots are so well established that I only vacuum the exposed gravel, and even that I do lightly. A weekly water change is my main tool to keep the water clean and to not overburden my filters. Plus the leafy greens act as a water column filter. My nitrate/nitrite levels are always very low. I supplement with micro-nutrients and substrate fert.

    On a side note, I had not thought about doing a journal but after this last week I might. My tiger lotus has put out TWO new flowers and it is hard not to be proud. Especially considering how beat up it was when I got it.
