Ok so i put the fish in. Hope it was not too soon. I also put the two Shubunkins in the tank. Not sure if that was a good idea now. They are chasing the two Ryukins right now lol. Hoping that they settle down soon. Also they will move outside to the pond when summer gets here.

very nice!

I can't tell from your photos how the anubias are planted, but make sure you don't bury the rhizome of the anubias (the thick stem that runs horizontal that the roots come off of), this will cause the plant to rot and die :(

The big one is not just the roots :) the little ones did not really have much of one at all though tried to keep as much of it as passable above too :) it is one i knew lol "one" ;)

but in thinking 5 more anubias-some dif types, two amazon swords, and two Alternanthera.

i might get something else later for a small ground cover in places but i have a small slection near me. ive also thought about getting a floting plant of some type lol.

Gotcha, I hate it when they don't have an established root system. Just keep an eye on them. If they start to go south you may need to tie them to a rock or float them for awhile until the root system establishes enough for you to plant them.

amazon swords would look great :) Some frazeri's would be nice too for background plants http://www.shop.plantedaquariumscentral.com/ANUBIAS-FRAZERI-Tall-Anubias-Specie-Frazeri01.htm
