Very nicely done. The dots of red against the green really stand out. I guess you'll have to trim away most of the hydrocotyle when you trim the hc (which looks about due now).

Thanks, I found the hydrocotyle actually helps anchor the HC. HC has been nothing short of a real PITA to keep rooted even after doing a dry start.

33 gallon!

Is that 33 gallons? Looks small for 33 gallons, IMO.

That's actually not a bad idea. I love the idea of hydrocotyle. Always grew nice and green for me.

I find it`s a really elegant foreground plant that often gets overlooked. Got it from a friend of mine, it`s my first time growing tripartite, and it`s one of my favourites. Of course I say that about each new plant.
