    I am after a plant for the back left corner, i was thinking about java fern or 'narrow' as it will make the tank look bigger. I dont think C.Helferi or similar plant will go that well. Any suggestions?

    I am planning on entering thjis into the AGA but i am not sure, it isnt doing to well at the mo.

    thanks, Aaron

    Hi Aaron

    Narrow fern would look nice. Then you need to think about a plant for the transition from the substrate to the fern.

    I would also consider experimenting with the rocks' angles as they appear a little too vertical right now.

    Also, you may wish to get this thread moved from the 'Aquascaping Showcase' to the 'Aspiring Aquascapes' forum.

    i thought i put it there :-?

    Thanks for the tips, there is some windelov fern between the rocks for the midground but since my CO2 ran out while i was away it got attacked by BBA :( so i took a load of the leaves off, it is just starting to recover.

    If the P.Helferi gets bigger then it may not look to bad? I might get some staurogyne sp. that could go well dont you think?

    thanks for the tips,

    Aaron
