It is melaluka. Similar to grape vine but nicer and bigger. I bought my plants off forum members on here and AL. The top layer of substrate is washed medium river sand from steve jones, pretty well the same as propagating sand.

Looking great Laurie! Can't wait for it to overgrow.

Hopefully that reddish leaf plant can set things off a bit.

I always like the Val near the spray bar to create the draped effect across the tank.

What is the ground cover plant on the left side?

Very impressed. I think some Gold saums would look great amongst the jungle.

Thanx, that is the ozalot sword. Just put out a new leaf.

Wont be putting any rivs in lol, they will rip it all up. Would look good for an hour or two though :)

Looks really good mate. Well worth fixing when it can look that good

Dave

Glad your happy with it :)

Hey I just read you're doing a co2 DIY set up ,

I'm doing the same and I have got some nice big stainless regulators ...

It's one panel with two outlets and are in kPa and are easily adjustable ...

We use them for the co2 injection on postmix soda systems ...

It's a bit dangerous because I think the smallest bottle I can have is a d size cylinder ..

Can risk being suffocated if it leaked or cracked a hose haha I shall make it fool proof but what I wanted to ask you off the top of your head like is there such thing as too much ?
