    Then yours must not be propagating very well. They shoot off sister plants with long stems under the water, while growing new leaves and growing a complex root system. They grow in a way that ties each plant together, creating a fairly sturdy surface.

    It's growing well enough - just I have a massive tank so not complete surface coverage. Oh I see what you mean now if you meant a completely filled mat of the stuff. I can now see how that would work - but it'd be to the detriment of any plants underneath as they'd block the light.

    Not entirely. I suppose I could take a pic of my 10gal rabbit snail/rcs tank. It looks a little ridiculous, since I'm using it for a grow-out tank and RCS + rabbit snail breeding, but everything in there is growing quite well - including a Rubin Sword, hygros, and alternanthera

    Could make something out of a plastic bottle like this

    Advantage is you don't have to wait for it to grow. Also clear plastic doesn't block light as much.

    Good call. Haven't seen that before - that's a pretty cool idea.

    I've tried on before... And I wasn't really happy with it and couldn't get rid of sharp edges. I know many others have used it happily and with great success.

    I am going to give that a shot! That looks great if I can get it to work. Love the idea about using gravel or moss etc for additional benefits. The way I was doing it was definitely slowing the current plenty but it was also slowing the intake of water/filtering. Can't wait to give it a shot.

    I've built 4 of those flow diffusers from gatrorade bottles. They are all on the 30 gal, and they are perfect. I was able to sand down the edges, and when the water level gets a little low because of the evaporation, they stop the current so it's not strong and the fish still comfortably travel to the upper levels of the tank. It stops my plants from becoming dislodged too. Highly recommend.
