need to fill a space in tank
My 55 gallon corner is really doing better than I could've hoped for except for one spot in the very back along the right side. I had originally planted some c. balansae to match the c. helferi I've got planted on the left side. The balansae has done OK, except it seems to want to grow towards the left and mingle with the helferi.
"Planted" (held the stems down with a rock) some bacopa there hoping it would grow tall; it did, but really ended up looking leggy.
The main issue is that I've got some egg crate in the back to build up the back to give the tank a little bit of a slope, so it's really hard to plant anything in the sand as there's just not a lot of substrate to hold the roots.
I would like to plant something that grows tall enough to 1) match the growth pattern of the balansae and helferi; and 2) hide the intake pipes and heater.
Was thinking of H. pinatifida attached to a smallish upright piece of driftwood, but any other suggestions y'all have would be great. Thanks!
Sidebar: just got done ripping up all the S. subulata that was growing in the front of the tank and really like the openness of the front now. Was toying with maybe planting something really small there to keep the "beach" look but have something growing. Was thinking C. parva. Keep it totally open or plant something small?
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22.
