Rotala Indica complement?
 
What looks good next to Rotala? Any thoughts? I planted about 10 bunches on the far right, kinda small now. I'm not sure whether to go with a dark green or something red, maybe nothing to the right but something similar on the left side?

I like ludwigia repens in front of r. Indica it helps create depth

I love how L. Repens compliments R. Indica

another one is l. aromatica

I'm working with l. Aromatica in my tank right now I haven't really found a good placement that I like for it

Can you post a picture of your Rotala Indica? You more than likely have rotundifolia, no one ever has true indica.
Here's true indica:
I like how liminophila aromatica goes with Rotala rotundifolia.

Would you put the liminophila aromatica in front of the rotala? Is it more of a midground?

Sethjohnson30 11-02-2012 03:58 AM

I plan using it in the mid ground. I'm not sure how tall it gets since I just got mine last week and it's in my low tec right now

I just added some staurogyne repens in front of my rotala rotundifolia. Great contrast. Many trim the staurogyne low like a carpet but I'm going to let it grow vertical just a bit.
