ok my LFS got in my HC. Came in 2" cup and unfolded into about a 2.5 diameter mat. The owner ordered 6 cups in case others wanted some. SHe was selling them for $3.00! well needless to say i grabbed 4 instead of 1.

I l planted them all up and here is what i have now. I basically am waiting for the roots to dig into the soil and anchor the mat. Id like the Dwarf sag to get a little thicker as well before I flood. I know the nana anubias is a slow grower so im just letting that go along for the ride.

While this fills in Im still planning my mechanics of the whole thing. Im def going to do a paintball CO2 DIY and prob going to use a tiny HOB filter. Since the background is black I will be painting all equipment black (or get black parts) that enter the water so it blends and keeps the display "clean" looking.
