Foreground


Whats a good foreground plant for a 10gal? I have riccia right now and although I love the look I am getting tired of the maitenance and the constant skimming of all the loose pieces. I have 36w of pc and dose EI method, been able to grow quite a few plants in here that are supposedly difficult.

You can try HC. I have used Elatine triandra, and also Hemianthus micranthemoides (pearlweed). The pearlweed requires pruning and a little training, but will form a carpet, I have the same lighting on my 10 and it will do it.
