Marsilea Hirsuta - clover ground cover
Hi everybody....first and foremost thank you, this place is awesome...2nd week here, and loving it....
Ok here goes - just ordered Marsilea Hirsuta or clover from an online source....most likely coming in in the emerged fashion, so will need to clip it down considerably...here's my question...I'm running a 120 tank with a somewhat strong surface current for aeration and a somewhat weak powerhead hooked up to a pressurized c02 gizmo sits low within the tank...using a small gravel like black substrate with larger gravel stones covering - so as I plant the rather small clippings of the sent pot is there some sort of cover I can use to protect it from water current, inquisitive fish, etc...rather than planting individually, would it help to plant this in smaller bunches about a 1/2 inch apart? I believe my water conditions are good, along with c02, strong lighting, and fertz, but would appreciate any advice...really dig the idea of having this grow in a carpet like fashion....
