1.Can these survive in a low tech shrimp only tank with 15-20% weekly water change, 0.5 w/l lights for 6 hrs, macro ferts half the dosage once a week.
Or should I keep them in a tank with CO2, 0.8 w/l light for 7 hrs, chiller set to 23 degrees, ferts macro. micro n trace elements, RO+minerals added n 50% weekly water change, substrate is rich in minerals?

2.What is better planting them in the middle or at the sides of the tank ?

3.If I want to keep these plants in a certain area in my tank how can I restrict the plants from
Any idea what I can add underneath the substrate to prevent the plant from spreading?

4.Is it possibe to add a plastic frame under the plant to restrict the roots from spreading sideways and products new stems? I know I can always uproot the stems but I want to avoid this.
