This is a great example of a relatively low maintenance tank. I had planted a bunch of baby tears in the front which overtook the foreground and with no pruning started browning on the bottom, so I replaced it with this new hairgrass which is few weeks time should cover the front of the tank nicely. The ADA items were all ordered on line: in San Francisco.
