I am planting a discus tank (switching tanks - planting new tank then then transferring the discus).

I have white pool filter sand, and was thinking of sectioning off an area that would have flourite black sand and be planted

I do not use CO2, just flourish and excel. But will probably upgrade to CO2 around x-mas time.

My plants are: rotala indica, java attached to DW, crinum thaianum + calamustrium, dwarf hairgrass, ludwigia repens, lobelia c. small form, e. bleheri.

Suggestions?

Thanks for all your help folks!

I don't have any answers, but I think an important question is which ones are easiest to plant stems in.
