i like riccia too, but it can easily float, too much debris, already removed
i try to make it triangular shaped
i like not to have background, almost all my tank don't have background.
i like the empty space too, most of fishes like to hang out above the empty space most of the time esp. during feeding time
a deadly fart,
the red line torpedo barb, puntius denissoni, very active swimmer, require a lot of space, first to reach food, search for food even in the glosso..
greenmiddlefinger, tq for the suggestion, fyi, right in the middle is newly planted tonina sp. belem, should grow taller in a month, and the back is the red plant, Ludwigia sp repens. In time, the middle plant will balance the layout, i hope. i hate glosso, never trim it from day one, don't know how, and it is out of control. i like those crypts in the middle of the glosso field, if i try to plant somewhere else, it will be hidden.
What if i remove the glosso completely, do you think it is better? Replace with blyxa japonica at the back and micro sword in the front.
