    Just make sure that there are no traces of pesticides, fertilizers or other pollutants. Perhaps it's better to use conventional filter floss instead of some dried leaves.

    I can use coconut fiber, the same that sells for outside plants? What purpose have the palm net?

    I like the blixa is very beautiful, the color is normal a red pigment for protection of light, is says that the plant is healthy.

    Moved the Anubias nana away from the center spot (too much light). The nana is now placed next to the driftwood... slightly shaded. What do you guys suggest I attach/plant here?

    The Blyxa japonica is happy when it turns copper. :) It's due to high intensity lighting. Tank is looking great!

    According to the product sheet "Palm Net is a specially selected husk of hemp palm... lowers pH and total hardness of water and also often been used in the filtration of drinking water. It is durable, does not quickly decay leading to filter clogging, and is best suited for filtration in your NA setup".

    Personally, I interpret the above as:
    1) Palm net is durable compared to filter floss.
    2) Does not require constant washing as it will not get clogged.

    But again... only time can tell :)

    Try some bolbitis fern, or another anuibius. I personally liked the aniubius in the bright spot :).

    I think anuibius would work great in that spot.
