    I think this was much better with the grass in the background and not in the forground. I very much like your scape! :) Keep going!

    That's a very nice aquascape! Love the "wild" feel it has.
    Do you have pictures of the plants in the wild? That would be very interesting to see.:)
    Good luck with your new layout!

    This is a great concept. And you rendered it so artfully. Well done!

    We have many interesting aquatic plants here in the Northern United States, but I am afraid that almost no one thinks to use them in aquascaping.

    I like the coarse texture and natural feel of this layout.

    What eleocharis sp. is that at the back? It looks fantastic growing out of the tank.

    Hi, thanks for your comments,

    hydrophyte: you only have to try!!!. Many plants around the world still are unknown, and we ignore his potential for use them in planted tanks. All comoon plants , some time was recolected by someone from the Nature, and cultivated(?? sorry my english) in aquariums. Many plants used in this tank, was or are unknown even in my country before of this tank.

    hamza: Is an Eleocharis sp, difficult to say the specific specie, maybe E. macrostacchia ...but many Eleocharis are similar, for example E. geniculata, E. montevidensis, etc...

    Thanks, "Saludos" from Chile
