    thank you for your kind words leaa, especially coming from someone who's tanks I am envious of! :P

    I find growing stuff emmersed is easy up until you decide to flood it lol. I am still learning the ins and outs of recently flooded emerssed growth... the plants basically reset themselves and are prone to stunting or even melting. I think it has to do with the sudden lack of CO2... so i have been dosing ferts and excel and it seems the plants are beginning to rebound. HC is such a finicky little plant!

    I think nano's are the most challenging because water parameters can swing at an instant, so its less forgiving (its excellent practice!). I know I wouldn't be as sharp with my 20g if it weren't for my nano. I would recommend however considering a 30 breeder in lieu of a 20g long. they are practically the same in footprint but extra 6" depth. because i know you're an excellent grower of plants, you will find a 20g crammed! (like i do lol)
