Hi guys,

After reading Tom's article on dry starting , I thought I might give it a go. What I was wondering though is which of the plants could be grown in the dry start method.

This link is the look I am going for, but I was wondering which of the plants could be grown emersed. Would I have to start with just some of the plants emersed like in the dry start method and then fill the tank to add other plants? By the way, I want to use HC for the carpet instead of the HM. Do you think this is a good idea? pros and cons of hc vs hm would be great

As far as the look of the tank goes, I don't think that I will use the sand in the middle to create a stream. Instead, I think that I would want to use more rocks like in this tank

however, I think the rocks I use will be smaller than in the tank in the link.

Basically, I want to use the plants used in the first link and the rock scape in the second together. What do you guys think of this plan? suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

HC (Dwarf Baby Tears)
Glosso

Also look into petrified wood...It looks and feels like Rocks

When you say HC and glosso do you mean that those are the only things that I could do in a dry start?

Generally YES...There is also UG, but these are the only plants that I know of that people dry start with.
