If the water sprite can survive and thrive in the same acidic conditions the fish need, and is pretty hardy, I will pick a bunch of that up too. I need to look it up. If it doesn't need to be in front of the outflow from the sponge filter it would be beautiful to fill in some areas with it.
I was thinking I could maybe get a bubble wand and lay it under the driftwood that the bolbitus would be on. That would maybe give it the current it needs without disturbing the overall tank current much. (and give me an excuse to get one of those neat lighted bubble walls.. lol)
This tank is in the planning stages still. I am in no rush to get plants especially since mailing them would probably result in cooked plant goosh when I open the box.
Thank you for your suggestion!
Water Sprite is better floating; check our profile (click on the shaded name).
I would caution against a bubblewand. These devices drive CO2 out of the water, and that robs plants of a macro-nutrient, carbon, that they especially need.
