There's a lot of light and a wide spread since the light is 18" wide, so many angles of lighting strike the leaves. Trimming well, staying on top of the scape.

You can see the plant in the Buce 70 Gallon tank.
I've been sick for 2 weeks with every sort of issue, but.......eventually I'll redo that tank and get the frags going in the reef.
This tank is coming along pretty good though.

gotta love stump scapes
i had bad experience with mini pelia when they spread loose and grow all over the tanks though

I add them, more than enough and then focus much more on light , co2 etc

It does contrast well with the wood.
But...........the tank is more for stems and high light stuff.

Tom, how do you keep the lower leaves from getting shaded? Looking back thru some of the older pics a lot of your plants look healthy all the way to the bottom? How do you keep them from having lower leaves die off when they are in such tight groupings?
Is it from the lighting or otherwise? Or are some of the pics deceiving

|houseofcards||I know it's probably not your thing, but I really like the stumps and placement and I can't help but think having one foreground like the UG would really accent the wood very well. having various plants in the foreground compete with the hardscape placement. IMO of course!|

I do not have much of the Myrio ATM, but I have the Tonina in mass for sale.
See above for trade bait also.
Many foreground plants are bright green and contrast well with reds.
Also balances having to trim the red stems often and opens up the tank and better flow etc.

I plan on using this more than the Fissidens which is a nice moss, very deep dark green, but the Mini pellia/Ricciardia is a nicer touch I think personally.
The tops of the stumps will be pretty coats and patchy with it, not completely engulfed or anything, but it'll hopefully be like "green lava".
I'd considered a nice row of Pellia or Subwassertang etc. It's got a nice texture and color as well, but not as deep green as Fissidens. But, the Ricciardia is a bit like Riccia but darker green and much more manageable in terms of growth rates.
The stems give a shorter time scale sense, while the Mini pellia offers a time scale that's several months ahead. The L. sphaerocarpa is coloring up nicer than before. It does not contrast well near the L senegalensis.
I am still looking for Syngoanthus uaupes, weeping moss and Hydrocotyle verticillata.
I am also trying out the L red pantanal in a spot or two to see.
I hate that damn plant. But it has the color and the leaf shape for good color and contrast balance.
The search continues.
