I have a lot of stems right now because I needed plant mass, but I hope my fern type plants fill in and eventually dominate the scape.
Thanks, The bolbitis is usually up in the water column so I never had any flow issues with it since it's usually pretty close to a spray bar or return. With that being said, with ferns in general it's very important to have very clean water. This will prevent organics from building up on them and getting BBA or other algae. I really haven't had a tank where their was a deficiency on one side vs the other due to poor flow. I'm really not sure if bolbitis needs more flow then other plants.
