I liked variegated much more. Very interesting plant. Kept a much nicer color, very cool pattern.

tetra10 how did you like the ray 2? also does s. repens carpet on its own or does it have to be trimmed and replanted?

Interested in this as well but didn't see a follow-up. Also noticed you went from the Sera 500 reactor to the 1000. Was that just to better match the greater flow?

alemao420 Great, I was just thinking of doing something similar. Just found my inspiration. Nice job!

BootyBrown Wow that stauro garden looks great (and so does the rest of the tank too)!

TexasCichlid Variegated has settled in nicely. Going to swap out the mini as I am not liking it much in the current scape.

Vermino looks good

TexasCichlid Updated shot. Replaced the ludwigia red with alternathera reineckii 'variegated' ( emersed transition ) and alternathera reineckii 'mini'. Going to see which one I like better. Few bald stauro patches filling in nicely with new growth from recent trimmings. 70ish stems of stauro trimmed in the past few weeks and it's tough to tell. Have some of the variegated growing in a newly done emersed setup. First time trying emersed out.

freph Looks great. I wish my stauro would grow that well, lol.
