What to do, What to do?
So... Have a 29 G Tank that was set about 8 months ago. Right now I have an undergravel heater(which looks terrible), my substrate is Eco-complete, I am running DIY CO2 which I recharge about once a week and I have a Current 2x65W PC Light on top. My plants are Myrio, Red Rotala, Java Moss, Java Fern, some sort of vallisinera and recently I purchased two mats of riccia fluitans on ebay. All are doing well with the exception of the Myrio, as it seems to die off at the bottom. I have diagnosed that as being a result of being planted too closely together, causing them to "release" their lower leaves so as to grow higher to compete for light/nutrients. I plan to remedy this by spacing them out a bit. My problems are as follows:
1) What do I do now with the Riccia?? I expected it to look much better on my substrate, but its not exactly what I thought. I have a large piece of driftwood already covered in java moss and doing well. I'd originally planned a carpet but you can see how that worked out. I'll take any suggestions here.
2) As you may or may not be able to see, I have a large area of bare substrate in the back right corner. What would you put there?
3) How do I cover that hideous looking undergravel heater?
