|FlyingHellFish||For the Rotala, when you trim the plant, do you replant the tops? I'm trying to get a ball-shape for my Rotala, but it just spits out new stems.|

HC, hairgrass and rotala as healthy as ever.

A little bit of an update I suppose. I mowed the carpet down in a thread a little while ago detailing how to trim and what you should expect it to look like afterwards. You can see here that it's already grown back in and starting to thicken again. Also, I present...
Freph's Rotala Bush o' Doom. It'll be getting trimmed up here shortly.

|tetra10||whats the name of your main stem plant in the middle?|

Just try to look at the long term in making a scape. If it doesn't look right in your mind then it it's probably not going to look right in the end result either. Also realize that a freshly planted tank is going to have some dings in it. I've been working with the HC/E. parvula carpet for months. I've been working with the E. acicularis for just as long. The rotala has been worked on in the past couple of month as well. All that's been done to it is about 15 stems or so at the initial planting and the rest was trimming and letting rogue stems grow horizontal to the substrate. This is a very quick and easy way to make rotala bushy or to propagate new plants.

|frrok||practice makes perfect... sometimes its worth just getting rid of the distractions and judt focus on growing the plants better. I wish I can do that. but I always want something thats aesthetically pleasing to me. even if I get frustrated trying to get it right...|

|MrAlmostWrong||Your persistence through all of this is truly inspiring. Great to see you are able to get to a place with this tank that makes you happy. Almost time for me to start my first lawn.|
