It turned out the knot they removed was cancer, so they had to remove all the lympnodes in that area. Luckily all the others were benign. I still can't get around real good, but thankfull that I can get around a little better every day. The gathering is going pretty good so far. I will see if I can get the petrified wood this weekend. My plan is to have a few different kinds of val along the back of the tank, and having crypts and java fern infront of them. On the right side, I am going to keep the driftwood that is stacked up there and add some christmas moss to it in a few places. In the back center I have a piece of driftwood with anubias that I like and more towards the middle of the tank and to each side I will have a lace leaf plant. On the left side I plan on having the petrified wood. Maybe attaching one of my bigger anubias to it. I also plan on having a few other plants in there, just not sure exactly what and where yet. I got some glosso in, and will try a little bit of that in front of the lace plants. I am going to have some Ludwiga broadleaf in there somewhere and also some sunset hygro I have gotten in.(not sure how this will do in there, but I am going to try it) I also am going to try some hornwort and watersprite in there somewhere. And I will be floating some riccia. Since I have nothing much to do but sit around most of the day for awhile, I have been tossing around ideas for a DIY hood so that I can have 2 bulbs over this tank to get more even lighting on it. Not wanting to up the WPG so much as to get more coverage.
