Blyxa will turn a redish color if fertilized correctly and under the right lighting. I did it and was well under 3 WPG.

Never heard of triponica

Nice new floor

The rock broken looks much better well worth the trip. I've got to agree though, maybe break up the other half of the rock and soften up the transition.

*thinks what seasonal fish are in these days...*

I decided on a glosso foreground. Can anyone suggest a plant that would look nice behind the rock. So far I can only think of E. tenellus.

Sorry to be such a noob...

Beautiful tank, I really like the ADA tanks, how many gallons is this tank? I am horrible with cm, I should be better considering I deal in mm all day, and had to take a ton of chem/physics in college. I am interested in watching this project. Are you doing Discus? If not what did you do with your Discus? also, where did you order all of your gear from?

lilaeopsis brasiliensis has potential. But the shade of green is about the same as glosso. Many online nurseries sell it in square foot sod, so that would be nice and an instant aquascape. Riccia is a def. no no. Its not tall enough, it foats and creates a mess and all that aquasoil in the back would be waisted.

It is a bit darker, Jeff Senske has a scape using it and Glosso and it looks great.

Maddog One of the sponsor ADG sells ADA as well as Aquaforrest.com sells ADA. Ive bought from both and they have been great. my discus went back to a LFS. The tank is 65gal. I would only put three discus in 65gallons I had four in my 120gal before.

hygro is a good choice but I think it is about the same color as glosso. Man I sound like Im being picky but I only want to plant once.
