I started with only a few small pieces that came with some stems I got from the SnS, and after about a month of it getting settled in it took off, and went CRAZY!!!! It had runners all threw my Water Sprite, crypts, lud. and covered a Moss Ball! I did neglect my tank the last month, and didn't trim as I usually do, but when I started to trim it tonight, that stuff surprised the heck out of me!

Anyway just a warning!

Tank looks great though!

Keep up the good pics too!

Thanks, yeah I trim the Hydrocotle a lot, it spreads fast and tries to grow up toward the light.

Thanks! I have trimmed a lot and moved plants around a few times. Yeah its a 2 bulb fixture (i added more info to the lighting in my first post, thanks for catching that).
