Meh, don't do a regular amazon sword, you might as well try a cool variety since it should grow like mad for you.

And wow, it seems a lot of people are doing that RayII and Monster Combo....is it considered high lighting? I feel like my t5ho's are outdated now even though they are only a year old :P

Also, I've never had luck with weeping moss, maybe its because it needs temps under 75 degrees, but I'm just throwing that out there as a word of warning. I'm trying fissidens instead, so that should be interesting.

Also, try and get more plants in there, you have the space for a TON of different species :P
