Blyxa will die emersed. Looking good by the way. A zoomed 501 is too weak for 8 gallons, so I would consider upgrading. Consider an Eheim 2213. Good luck.

i have used this 501 before and had no problems. if you know what your doing and do water chages you can use any filtration on a tank. if you know how to up keep a tank. thanks for the luck.... and bylxa emersed...? i just started the c02 3 days ago so i will show you it wil not die. thaks for your input

I think CPDzeke was under the impression that you were starting with the DSM because there is no water in the tank. He is correct about it not being able to be grown emersed. I assume it is filled now since you mentioned that you have CO2 up and running?

Nice scape.

i did DSM on glosso and dwarf baby tears. then when i got the bylxa i filled tank and started co2. it has a lil, but mostly the glosso and baby tears have taken off. i will post some pics in a day or so.

I had no problems with filtration/flow using a 501 on my 7.9g tank, which is roughly the same size/dimensions.

I really like this scape.. I'm digging the open space with the gravel, I may have to try something similar.
