    Hi@ all,

    after my short introduction here are some pics:

    first a few details about the tank:

    Size: 60x30x36, 63liters
    Light: 4x15Watt (2x Daylight, 2x dennerle special plant)
    Filtration: external Eheim (an old one, got from my father)
    Soil: Amazonia II
    Stones: Lydit
    Plants: Eleocharis Parvula, Anubias Bonsai, Riccardia spec., Micranthemum umbrosum, Limnophila Aromatica, Hydrocotyle Verticillata, Lilaeopsis brasiliensis.

    Great tank!
    I love it! ;)
    Just an appointment for the Micranthemum umbrosum in the right back. I think that Hemianthus micranthemoides could be better option, but just let it grow, and then you could think in this sugestion!
    Keep refresh!

    Thanks for writing some lines... yesterday i got my CO2 pressure gas bottle...
    I'll keep you on the run...
    @DiogoHCMatias this is funny: i got the wrong plant. it was planed to have Hemianthus micranthemoides next to the Limnophila.... I'll have a few changes, like adding staurogyne sp. and some new plants also....

    Hi Hannes... in my opinion the aquascape looked better first. I think that you shouldn't cover the road with the plant ( I don't know what plant is it). Replacing the Umbrossum is a good idea and i like it but another think that i don't like are the plants that are at the end of the road. I think that you shoudn't change very much at the road...

    I'm curious to what kind of moss do you have on the wood? it's very nice

    Hi Crstn_savu (??),

    thanks for your comment. Its Riccardia on the wood. You're right, there are too many plants in there... Now there are 15species, and if its finished, there will be 5-8 taken out.
    My plant dealer, gave me some new species and so i have to try out, which one grows best and looks good to the two things who are sure: 1. Riccardia on the Wood. 2. The Eleocharis Parvula/Mini/Mexico in the foreground.
    The rest is'nt sure and i'm very happy, if someone gives me tipps like you. Thanks...

    anyone else some idea, which plant could replaced, or taken out?

    Greets from Sahara... ähh germany.:hi:

    I think that most aspiring aquascapers have thiw problem (me to). We use to many plant species at the start but when we saw the 'veggetable soup' we take out few plants.

    Riccardia looks very nice. Do you know any online petshop from Germany who's shipping in Romania this plant?

    It's not possible to get it in that healthy shape. It needs time to grow that way.

    I got it from http://www.wasserpflanzen-freunde.de Its the page from Roland Stößner.
    Write him, and ask, if you get a special price and don't forget to to say my name (Johannes Kunkel) :)))

    all best
