Thanks guys!
 
Around this time last year I was tentatively buying my first plants, I never imagined it would lead to a hobby so engrossing or ultimately rewarding!
 
My thanks to everyone who voted and participated and helped run it!

Can anyone tell me the name of the tall plant on the left hand side of the tank?
Yep that's hygrophila polysperma at the back with some lobelia cardinalis growing in front.

Great looking tank, well deserved win.  I especially love the contrast of Red Wag Platys against the greens of the plants.  I also have H. polysperma and I love it.  Fairly undemanding plant that grows fast and full.

Thanks guys!
 
I read in another thread that H. polysperma is classified as a noxious weed and illegal in certain countries which might explain why a lot of people don't recognise it.  I get asked what it is a lot.  I got the impression it was illegal in the US but I see Ruskull is in the US and you've got loads in your tank so maybe it isn't?

H. polysperma is illegal in some states, Daize, but not in others. ;)
