well, then it should look very similar to a. gracilis, how is it different? I don't have that book. It could be emersed growth like you said, I started with emersed growth of that plant too. The leaves are rounder and smaller with emersed growth, totally different from submersed growth.

here is an example of bad looking A. senegalensis (just noticed in its desciption it also says it prefers soft water.)
The pic in the Baensch aquarium atlas is as bad.

This pic is close to normal, non-decifient A. senegalensis. Notice how similar it is to ammania gracilis.

I will do aquascapes after I collect all the plant species and grow them to perfection.
