Also I did have another question. Should I place dwarf sag. or narrow leaf microsword. My light will be 108W which is almost 2 WPG and which will look better.

I'd say it depends on how high you want it...some of my dwarf sag is at least 12 inches high. Not really too dwarf-like, really.

Default Long Overdue Update

Hello everybody. Last week I received my driftwood from PC1 and was very pleased with the results. Today (8/15) I received my plants and placed them along with the driftwood in the aquarium.

The plants I received were:
-Narrow leaf microsword
-Cyperus helferi
-Hygrophylia kompact
-Green Myrio

Here are some pics of the progress.

















Hope you guys like.

Very pretty and a great design.

The Hygro "Kompact" will assume its full grown stature in your tank IME.

Once it is cycled you can place whatever stock you plan to have in there. I would start with any CUC first then add the Discus and finally add any dither fish.
