The left is actually a mirror image of the right due to the tank. Do you mean the first row from the back or the front row in the picture?

Currently both my downoi & alternanthera reineckii 'lilacina' are melting like crazy. Some other plants are growing green leaves. But my ludwigia senegalese & rotala wallichii are doing quite well. I'll try to span a picture on my progress later.

Because at my parent's house all the metal parts 3-5m around the tank are rusty even the screws under the dining chairs hahaha :p

This is another shot of my 90% completion tank shot.

http://i1062.photobucket.com/albums/...4D45308CE5.jpg

Current flora are:
Ammania sp. "Bonsai"
Alternanthera reineckii "lilacina"
Hydrophila polysperma "Rosanervig"
Didiplis diandra (aka Blood Stargrass)
Echinodorus vesuvius
Ludwigia inclinata
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Cuba"
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Pantanal"
Ludwigia glandulosa
Ludwigia repens "Rubin"
Ludwigia senegalensis
Lobelia cardinalis "Dwarf"
Limnophila aromatica
Micrantherum umbrosum "monte carlo"
Nesaea sp. "Red"
Pogostemon helferi (aka Downoi)
Rotala macrandra "Variegated"
Rotala rotundifolia
Rotala wallichii
Syngonanthu sp. "Belem" (aka Tonina sp. "Belem")
Trithuria sp "blood vomit" (Eriocaulon sp "Vomit Blood" / Tu Xie Gujing)

Will be looking for some other plants to replace my melting downoi. And giving some trimming of Rotala Wallichii today just trimmed & replanted my ammania sp. "bonsai" too.

By the way my tank "cycles" using using RO/DI water, ADA aquasoil S special, BW substrate system, Tropica substrate & Micro-Lift products. It only took 2 days but I waited till it is 4th day before I add those ruby & cardinal tetras. Whomever know where to get 30 pcs of ruby tetra please pm me thank you. (I wipe out GC & Y618's ruby tetra supply already):p

Nice planted tank, colourful Dutch style. Can't wait to see it mature.

Thank you bro tco.

Since my last post I've added an other lightset the evo 3w led for my foreground. And have got 1 pot each of UG & A. reineckii mini from the 1-2 grow from Tropica. Here is a sneak peak from one of my favourite plant Ludwigia senegalensis from top view between the lightsets.
