Hi everyone,

I need help on aquascaping my tank. As of right now I have a center peice driftwood with Java Lace on it. I have a few bundels of corkscrews in the backround as well. I like the plant that looks like a carpet on the substrate and on driftwood, what it the name of that specific plant and where can I buy it. Also I love the certain depth and color in plants on the tanks in the forum, can any maybe give me a layout to get me in the right direction. I have eco-complete substrate, co2 injection, corallife freshwater lighiting, all in a 55 gallon Discus tank. I have had my tank for about 2 years and final after finishing school have the time to put more life into it. One more thing I heard that new plants turn brown and die off in the begging when they are introduced into the tank is this true? Thanks for the help!!

As pufferfreak said dwarf sag is a good foreground. Some easy to find background plants are Rotala Indica, Brazilian Pennywort, any kind of Hygrophila, Red rubin sword, Melon sword, Asian Ambulia. All the plants I listed are pretty easy to grow.
