    Hi guys. I have a 30 gallon breeder tank that has 3 types of foreground plants. The echinodorus tenellus (micro sword) and the lilaeopsis seem to be growing in well together mixed, so I let them run amok with each other but i cleared a space in the middle to make room for dwarf hairgrass to grow...
