That's what I thought. Thanks for confirming. I suppose the OP could put some snails or something in there, though.

It's not a stem plant, but I have a "carpet" of A. nana in a 20H. It's taken years and years to grow it all from a single plant.

Every couple of months my H. Corymbosa "Compact" drops all its leaves, and sprouts new ones after a couple of days. I mixed some C. Wendtii and C. Wendtii "Bronze" in a group because I thought it...

I've had Marineland, Hydor, Jager, and Deep Blue. I probably like the Jager best. My local LFS guy is into "high end" equipment (his words) and he is pushing Cobalt.
