Well I joined the dirty tankers today! I bought some Miracle Grow Organic Choice Potting Mix. I did about 1-1.5" and capped it with 1/2" of Eco Complete. I replanted my staurogyne repens and in the process of replanting my glosso and dhg. Since blyxa can't be grown emersed I put it in this for the time being

Comments or suggestions are welcome!

Is there a list of all the rotala species somewhere? When I grew r. Rotundifolia I loved it and always wanted to collect all the rotala species and start a collectors tank. I'm not sure I know what r. Sunset looks like but I'll definitely look it up. Thanks Storm!

I really like what you ended up with. It took some time and effort but it looks amazing.

Thanks urb! I think the hardest part was actually trying to figure out what scape I wanted and now that I found it I am happy with it!

Hey, seeing as we're both in the same town Do you still have any c.willisii? I have a small amount of rotala colorata and some other stems I would be willing to trade.

Always curious.
