Thanks Mel! :D I don't see him all that often, so I figured I'd get a shot while I had the chance haha

It's actually quite a few plants, but they're close together so it looks like one :)

Love the photo above. We can see some of the 24 inches width. Are your fish enjoying the back of the tank also? (swimming and exploring) Just gorgeous.All your plants look so green and lush. Your not having any kind of algae problem?

Some of them swim through the back every so often, but most of the time they're at the front :) every so often I'll count and there'll be one or two missing, and then I'll spot them hidden in the plants haha.

The other week I was seeing a slight brown covering on some of my plants, but that's gone now and everything still looks very green :) I think I'm losing one of my plants, the leaves don't look great, but I'll just replace it with something else if and when it goes :) the only issue I am having right now is keeping my hygrophila trimmings in the substrate :teehee they'll just keep floating up until they root, it's quite frustrating really

That's neat that they are utilizing the whole tank with their swimming. (Even if it's just one or two fish your trying find. :)) Sounds like your doing awesome with your plants Alicia with no huge problem.

I actually didn't use dirt in the end :) I had initially planned to, but the day before I was due to start the tank up, I visited a great aquascaping specialist shop called The Green Machine, and a guy there persuaded me to use a plant substrate rather than dirt. I used tropica plant growth substrate, and I have been having great results :)

Wonderful growth, Lis! I can imagine myself just sitting at starring at your tank for a very long time--it's so mesmerizing.

It seems my aponogeton is getting ready to flower! I wasn't aware they flowered until I notice the tip sticking out of the water. I first thought the goldfish were eating these, as every so often I'd find bits of the leaves floating on the surface. But over the last few days I've noticed an explosion of growth from them, the leaves are huge and now I noticed this. Very exciting :)
