Thanks for the tip. I was hoping that you would chime in. I was hoping to buy large rocks, I love the soft look of hairgrass, and have wanted to keep it again ever since I tore down my first planted tank.
I will be having some stems in the back, most likely. I'm kinda wondering how I am going to accomplish this successfully. I guess I'll have to break out the aquajournal, wherever it is.
