Alrighty, all of this is pertaining to my 10G Guppy tank which was recently planted.
I'm thinking I need to aquascape a bit, since some things have changed shape and/or arre growing faster than expected.
Sorry, no pics. Don't have a decent camera. :/
Anyways, I was wondering what will do best in a downward current?
(I have a HOB filter, and although there's very little, if any, surface movement, there is a strong downward current from the flow out of the filter.)
Is there anything that will be able to handle the current?
I was thinking maybe my Water Wisteria (Hygrophilia Difformis) or Corkscrew Val?
My current Setup is:
Cabomba Carolina, Rotala Indica, Ludwigea Natans, Vallisneria (corkscrew) along the back (from left to right)
With a few stems of Anarchis and Hygrophila Difformis as a middleground plants.
I have an Aponogeton Crispus as a centerpiece (the current keeps moving the floating leaves around, so now they're braided and twisted together, but it's kind of cool-looking. )
I keep my stargrass weighted down (every few nodes it's buried in gravel) so it makes a lovely carpeting plant until my dwarf baby tears comes in.
I have Mexican Oak leaf in the front left corner, and hornwort in the front right. The area around the filter (a little less than 1/4th of the tank) is empty.
Anything I can put there?
I also want to move the hornwort to the back, maybe let it trade places with the vallisneria?
(Does vallis usually take a while to start growing? Seems to be growing the slowest of everything.)
I also have some rocks... but I want to keep them towards the middleground.
Are there any plants I should keep in the brighter parts of the tank? (There's not any part noticable brighter, so it wouldn't be a huge difference.)
Or should I keep some of the plants somewhat distant from the others to make sure they get enough light?
Sorry for this long post- everything (except the vallis) has put on a ton of new growth- I probably shouldn't be complaining.)
