Well, the more I think about it, the more I'm leaning toward a dutch or dutch-inspired rescape. Here's the tank after using an Excel overdose for around a week and a half to kill off the BBA.
I think it's done pretty well as far as killing the BBA. (Note: I have some new bunches of plants in there that I'm holding for a friend, so a lot of that will be leaving shortly)
As far as my rescape, here's my ideas so far: I'm removing the 5 pieces of malaysian driftwood that I've had in there. I may or may not use this piece of manzanita:
Plants I'm taking out:
limnophila aquaticaPlants I'm adding:
myriophyllum mattogrossense (maybe)
ludwigia peruensis (glandulosa)
nassaea pedicillata 'golden' (maybe, I'll have to see how I like it after it grows a bit)
staurugyne repens (might be taking the place of some of the blyxa)
pogostemon helferi (also might take the place of some blyxa)
syngonanthus 'belem' (maybe in place of myrio mattogrossense)
I might even throw in a red tiger lotus for a little while.
Here's kinda what I have in mind as far as positions:
glossostigma- thin carpet along front
blyxa japonica- midground
staurugyne repens- fore/midground hedge
pogostemon helferi- fore/midground hedge
hemianthus micranthemoides- fore/midground hedge
didiplis diandra- mid/background hedge
heteranthera zosterifolia- mid/background hedge or street
pogostemon erectus- background cluster
ludwigia peruensis- background cluster/focal point
limnophila aromatica- background cluster
nassaea pedicillata 'golden'- maybe a background cluster, if I decide to keep it
syngonanthus 'belem'/myriophyllum mattogrossense- background cluster
myriophyllum sp. 'guyana'- street
rotala macrandra- street
This is by no means a final plant list, as any given plant is subject to removal at my discretion. Lol.
Sorry for the novel of a post, but maybe some of you can manage to follow it and maybe share your thoughts/suggestions.
