    That is a very interesting photo, you can see the (runner) that its growing along plus the runner is just under the surface of the water.

    Aeschynomene fluitans, view from the side (it takes around 20-25 cm of the aquarium width):

    When using Aeschynomene fluitans you will be constantly trimming it if you only had a standard width tank.

    You certainly know how to grow very colorful plants especially reds.

    Not much changed, i've been kind of busy and went only with the weekly maintenance.
    I'm also starting to gather some new hardscape for the setup that will replace Forest temptations, i have a lot of ideas now and no free time. :eek:

    You say "Only" can you give a brief outline of what your maintenance is please.

    Are you planning a new competition Aquascape?

    Back and sorry for the late response, Keith.

    "Only" meaning just the water change and maybe some trimming here and there.
    Yesterday i took out the rocks from the "valley" and cleaned them up a little. To much BBA. :(

    Hope to get back soon with some pics.

    You have the way of making every thing look so natural.
