    The HM is too tall, which you already know :), but once you trim them down to the same height as t rest of the foreground it will look nice. I meant that you could let the sag fill in towards the spot where the HM is and them move the HM back. That may look good, because the HM and sag will be intermingled eventually. Also once you do that you'll be able to view the nice cardinal plant and lotus you have going back there. The contrast of those two looks very nice!

    One more thought, those amazon swords will become MONSTERS! I just pulled 2 out of a 30 gallon I had going. They were WAY to big for that and grew way too fast.

    I'll try to send you some Blxya ASAP. I think that would fit well in your tank. Your off to a great start though. It won't be long before this tank is filled in and looking good.

    I will me moving the HM tonight, now that i think about what you said i think it would be better somewhere else. Yeah i would love some Blxya i haven't tried that plant and i think it looks great. I am also going to replace the Sag with glosso today i think. Do you need any sag? Thanks for the comments i can't wait to see how it looks with it filled in.

    I haven't had great success with sag, but I'd put it in one of my tanks and see what happens :). I'll try to send you some plants soon!

    Between the three my favorite is dwarf hairgrass. It grows a little slower then the others, but does not get out of control; unless you have high light. Dwarf sag is just too eractic in growth & will easily take over. The one time I tried Glosso, I had no luck with it. But it does make a really nice forground.

    really nice, you've made some nice improvements in the eye candy department. I think you're plant placement works together
    really nice. I see you removed the dwarf sag. Mine was the same way, it took a long time and then took off like mad.

    about your yellow guarami, is it aggressive toward your other guarami? I have one and it's starting to pick on all my other bigger fish.

    Thanks for the comments. Every now and then the yellow guarami will mess with them, but its rare. Usually they act great together.

    Looking really good... There's nothing wrong with seeing which foreground plant works best for, so no your not stupid! Who knows, maybe they both will blend well together.

    Thanks for the comment. Yeah i guess your right. Maybe so if i can keep the glosso out of the hairgrass. Or maybe it would look ok with the glosso running into the hairgrass. Hairgrass has grown but not any runners yet.

    Right on Pat! Once everything grows in it will be looking good and then we can start nitpicking!

    I really like what you got going on there.
    Could you possibly post a FTS shot, taken tank level directly from the front.
    That will give us a better perspective of the tank and that placement of your wood and plants IMO.

    Just like you did in the first post of the thread, you didn't get that same angle / shot since you changed the wood and added plants.

    Thanks, that is a better angle to see the tank.
    I like the wood now.
    I can't wait for the hairgrass to start filling in.
