Thanks zeldar and Outlawboss. i think its southeast asian DW, thats what it says on the AFA website. the first time i this saw type of DW i thought it had so much character and texture, i had to have it for my tank. i'm really digging those mosses that give you that drooping effect. trying to go for the whole jungle look, but dont really want to over do things and make it look weird. so hopefully when i do choose, i'll be happy with it and not want to change it after the first week or so.
Thanks TLE041. when i filled the tank I gave the microsword about a month or two to adjust to its submerged state. after that i just trimmed it really short (just like pruning HC) and it just stayed short. i think its still converting to the submerged form though because some of the strands are melting so it might get a little taller. as for fauna, some type of nano schooling fish i think would be cool. but this past week i went to my lfs and i saw what i think is called an electric blue ram or something. really small fish with vibrant blue colors. this caught my eye and im at a crossroads again, so i'm not too sure yet.
