Avoid java moss; its growth pattern is very unruly. Something like Christmas moss or erect moss would be good.

I find it helpful to grow them emersed first until they're stronger. Then the transfer to submersed goes flawlessly.

Nice start. I would suggest bringing the rocks out of the substrate some more to give them more height. Keep in mind that with plants grown in the impact of the rocks will be lessened.

The only one that may not do well is the macrandra - it and its various cultivars can be touchy at times. The Cuphea will probably be fine.

Green neons are pretty small (except for the very old and fat ones). I used to have a dozen in a 10 gallon and they had plenty of space (and this is coming from someone who likes to understock).

Rotala colorata and rotundifolia will be fine, as will the Staurogyne. The rest are pretty iffy. What PAR are you getting at the substrate?

I haven't tried A. gracilis, but it does seem to get a bit larger than I'd like. I have some A. crassicaulis coming in soon - I'll have to try that one.

Those are C. balansae. They will get to be over 2 feet if you let them. If you want a good foreground crypt try C. willissi x lucens or parva (though the latter is extremely slow and would require a...

I have never seen it without the pinholes in a high tech tank. I used to grow it in a low tech tank and it didn't show deficiency symptoms, but overall growth rate was quite slow.

Anyone know if this is actually a small variant of Bolbitis or is it just people selling young Bolbitis plants as something else?

Is it possible to maintain a high quality strain of guppies in a colony tank setup, or is a divided tank the only way?
