    Roy do you intend to have any inhabitants in that tank if so I would be thinking of the basic red cherry shrimps.

    Looks great Roy. Looks like you lifted it out of nature with a pie server! I am still toying with the idea of one of my own, but my head is flooded with ideas and I am trying to pick the best and refine them.
    BTW- my knee has healed. I doing daily short walks and I am working on getting some balance back. With neuropathy and no toes its a bit of a chore.
    I hope whatever family difficulties you had been resolved.
    All the best,
    Rob

    Hi Evelyn , Thank you :) The Mimosa is the aquatic one Aeschynomene fluitans. Wonderful looking plant:cool: I know its an aquatic plant but grows well hanging over the outside of the tank with the roots on the old stem in the water if the new stem touches damp soil or water it will root. I have found if I leave the hole stem in water parts start to root well then get top growth and grow well at the start. Then as the plant moves over the water the old roots die off of get clogged with algae then the leaves die above Strange things plants o_O
