Hey All,

I just set up an ADA 12" cube with a hampton bay 27 watt pc light. I have aquasoil amazonia as a substrate and a nice stump in there. I was wondering what type of plant would make a nice carpet with out taking over the stump?

I will attach a picture of the tank in a few :)

Some Pictures

I was trying to take off my flash but I couldn't figure it out. Where the glare of the flash was, there is actually a driftwood coming out, as you can see from the side pictures.

UG is always good. However, it would also be helpful to know your parameters. Are you planning on fertilizing? Is this supposed to be low tech? Inject CO2?

Lilaeopsis is also a good genus to look for "grassy" plants.
No CO2. This is going to be mainly a shrimp tank so I dont want to mess with all that. This is just going to be a low tech tank.
Hmmm i was also thinking about lilaeopsis brasiliensis for a tank with clay for substrate and 3 co2.
OK bought the lilaeopsis brasiliensis and planted it, got the bunch and took it apart and planted it a few inches apart from each other.

We'll see how it develops. Tropica says it's not that much of a demanding plant.

The age of teh aquariums/aquahobby says it's hard to keep...
