Micranthemum micranthemoides grows like crazy. If what you want is a wall of green, then that could be a good choice. But it's hard to see any texture with such a dense bush of fine-leaf plants. I think something like a tall eleocharis or some cyperis helferi would look nice in the background and give the scape a greater sense of depth.

Thanks for the tip. I will cut back on the usage of HM.

Aquascape - Layout Planning

The plants arrived yesterday. Some of them were badly beaten and I had to make changes to my planting layout plan. This is the day 1 vid.

I did not get a chance to use HM in this scape at all. The store from which I ordered plants, did not ship HM at all. So right now I have planted majority of red plants in the background including Rotala macrandra, Rotala híra, Ludwigia arcuata, Hygrophila araguaia. All different shades of red and organge.

Was able to source a tissue culture cup of HM and planted the rear left corner with HM. Itís unlike any other stem plant I have dealt with. The leaves are super fine and super small. Some of the HM is under the skimmer and will not get direct light. But I think there is still enough light. Hoping for the best.

The rear right corner I have planted Rotala Híra which is another small and fine leaved texture. I also have Hygrophila araguaia and parrots feather for the background.
