    Default Thoughts on planting in my tank.

    0 Not allowed!
    The plants I plan on using are Italian vals, Parviflorus swords, flame moss growing on bricks, Hygro. Corambosa and Bacopa Carolina. This will be a low tech medium light. Note: I drew these picture so they are not the best.
    Here is a top view of my idea for planting:

    The relatively open area is the front, or the side you would view it from.
    In the area where the italian vals are there is a line in the middle of the bubble. This is where they would be planted up to. The very end of the bubble is how long I would let them get.

    Here is what it would look like from the front:

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    What size tank?

    Any thoughts of foreground plants?

    Some will chime in with suggestions.

    Look at some of the ADA setups, might get some ideas there.

    It is a 55 gallon, I have to have some room in the the front for my L200 to move and turn around.

    Should work. Personally I'd also put something on the driftwood and perhaps something very low right in front of it but that depends on the piece of wood.

    why plant the flame moss on a brick, it attaches to driftwood just as easy if i remember correctly. besides that everything looks like its well planned out
    I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
    gotta love them bunnies!
