Overfloater I see. Well have at it. I look forward to your ideas in execution.

UDGags One of them is the same, it's the one on the right in 2013 and it is in the back in this years layout. I have other wood with it in this years layout and part of it is under the soil.

Overfloater Are those the same pieces? They don't look like it to me.

UDGags I thought about it but that's kind of what I did in 2013. I was looking to do something a bit different. I have a plan for the plants so we'll see how it works out. I do have a plant layout chart made but don't want to share it quite yet.

Overfloater I like it. However, what do you think about moving the light colored piece to the left side making an intertwined fingers type space at the center of the tank? I think that would give you more planting options.

UDGags These pictures should be better to show the new hard scape. I tried to arrange the wood where I would have some natural rows and flow patterns. I also tried to keep in mind the golden rule in terms of final layout. Let me know what you think (good, bad, suggestions, comments, etc.)

UDGags edit..will fix tomorrow

UDGags The hygrophila araguia I'm getting is in emersed form so it will take a bit to switch over.

Wallichi grew well for me in the past but it's definitely sensitive of the parameters. It needed it's space and high light to look good. If not it got really stringy and ragged looking Also having it in high current did not work

Overfloater If you get the Wallichi going well, I'd be interested in cuttings in the future. Haven't had it in about 8 years, but never had much luck.

Also, I'm looking forward to pictures of the hygrophila araguia. It was recently classified as hygrophila lancea but apparently there are two different plants and there seems to be some confusion.

UDGags I had the ammania in my 2013 scape (see pic below) and it flourished. I didn't have any issues with it and it grew great (almost weed like).

It will be my first time with the Crypt (hell first time with any crypt) so we'll see.
01-15-2015 07:21 PM
HybridHerp I'm unsure how well that crypt or ammania will do, they seem to be sensitive plants from what I understand. Good luck with them regardless.

UDGags Here are the plants I'm getting from

Alternanthera Reineckii 'Variegated'
Ammannia Senegalensis
Crypt Striolata
Eichhornia diversifolia
Eleocharis 'belem' (DGH Belem)
Hottonia Palustris
Hygrophila sp. 'Araguaia'
Ludwigia "Red" Hybrid
Rotala Colorata
Rotala Wallichii

Going to start with these but might pick up a couple others I have my eyes on when I see some clippings available.
01-13-2015 09:24 PM
UDGags Thanks but I'm good with both. Not using stauro anyways but might use the L. red.
01-13-2015 08:44 PM
Overfloater If you didn't get the Ludwigia red I can send you that. I also have Staurogyne repens I can spare. Your house is only an hour away.....

UDGags I did some scaping tonight with the wood. I think its time to pick out some plants. If you got some plant combo ideas I'm all ears.
