thanks for the comments smile.gif

they (except 1st&2nd) went to LFS and 3 were sold

Sarah, i don't think 'grafting' is the correct term.

the plants are grown separately and then i pick and attach the best ones for particular spot on driftwood.

about the tannin... yes i can live with it now

fishybits, i use fishing line and i am glad you can't spot them tongue.gif

haven't tried to put those in african cichlids tank and wouldn't do it

Hello!

I've done the same thing in my Malawi tank and the fish ignore it, except for the smaller ones using it for a hiding space. And yeah - it's not biotope but it looks OK and doesn't turn into mbuna food. smile.gif

I am not nearly so artistic with my arrangements... and use black cotton so it can rot away eventually when the plant has attached to the wood (tip I picked up from an Amano book).

Cheers - OziOscar.
