Parva takes forever in my tank but spiralis brows high and shoots runners. I think you could save on spiralis and simply split up each pot, space them in three triangles ( so each triangle fills in to one large plant) ad you're good to go.Check out my 55 Gallon, planted, Philly themed community tank!

Love the idea of red root floaters!! I need something too...the water lettuce doesn't survive. Not sure if MTS are eating at night but seems like it disintegrates.
One more tip from experience, the parva will grow in better if you separate each of the rhizomes and plant closely together in checkerboard pattern. I like it a lot as a foreground plant because you don't have to trim but it takes looooong to grow in so have patience! I had a bunch that got buried when I vacuumed the sand and found them weeks later - still growing in bushy! I split it up and planted again...
Hey I'm getting some clippings from a neighbor - jungle vals and crpyts. Seems like you're selling all rotala? Why?! such a nice small leaf stem plant idea for background plant! Also got tons of java fern...Maybe for thanksgiving I'll send you a goody bag!

So stuff is coming along well with the house, and tank is being moved on Friday (shoot me now)
So the plan is to buy a new 75, use the old one while the new one is being set up (3D background and being dirted). Then sell the old 75.
I already have someone that wants my 75 and lids for $160. And I can get a 90 with stand, tank, AC110, AC70, a handful of 6" SA Cichlids (parrot, JD, Green Terror, Salvini, Texas, and Nicaraguan). Comes with some older SW stuff too. All for $250 and about an hour and a half drive one way... worth it? I think so

Wow - I think that's a good deal - considering what everything would cost new!
