I decided to attempt a Hydrocotyle tripartita carpet, anchoring the nodes with small stones until they root.

I just decided I need a giant bowl more than anything in the whole world. Where did you find this glorious item? Any filter?

I would love you to get one so that I can copy whatever you do with it!

I got this one from Homesense, the Canadian version of Marshall's or Home Goods.

I really need to find a nice rock or piece of wood. I'm leaning toward a rock...

And no filter, which is contributing to the Aquasoil silt problem.

That last photo is AFTER removing almost half the floating plants.

Nice! Glad you got the pics up.

A rock would look great. I like it better w/o all the floating plants. It looks less cluttered & we can see the beautiful betta.

Love the last pic. Too many floaters IMO. Maybe just a few will do.

Thanks! And yes, I have since removed a good amount of the floating plants. I think they were really helpful in keeping ammonia spikes in check over the first few weeks though, so it was good to have so much to start with.
