I'd originally sot to use that, but tried the Erio setaceum type 3, it just did not do as well as this weed. the Erio does not like crowding, I have it doing great in my 180, where it gets few trims, plenty of room and such. The tanks both have the same light, bulbs, sediment, dosing, water changes, fish loading and feeding etc, CO2 is a bit different, but the plant did well when it was not crowded in the 120, then as it filled in, not so hot.

It also does not do well in the 180 when it's crowded also.

The Limnophila gigeatea is a nice large dramatic weed, can handle aggressive pruning. Takes about 2 minutes a week to trim it, and yes, it needs trimmed weekly. Puts on 2-4" a week easily.

Nice contrast plant.

ADA Aqua soil, pretty much all my tanks have just that, nothing else.

I did a good sized trim last night. The Tonina, the L. senegalensis got a good much needed whack.

I hope to get the Elatine hydropiper this coming week.
Then the front middle section will get a nice planting of that.

I also will be after a nice bright green plant for the rear corner, got tired of S. belem, I put the Hydrothrix back there, but it does not have the brighter color contrast I prefer.

Tom this tank is really amazing. It seems to cross the boundary from weekend hobby into fine art, considering that the majority of your efforts go into the color theory of combining complimentary plants. A point of harmony will be reached I am sure, for all the combinations you have assembled thus far have looked great.

Nice job!

I noticed when you sold off the U.G you simply replanted the plugs, Im trying to get a good ground cover of it in my tank, can i trim it down to the substrate to encourage new growth, or is it better to replant in plugs and let spread out?
Thanks for your time

nevermind, you answered this in another thread

After you update and replant can you label/identify all the plants in the picture?? similar to what you did in the above posts?
