That is ok, I like what you suggested. My goal is to keep the pygmy chain sword trimmed to a fairly low height and also make sure I still have some substrate showing. From what I have seen it seems like planted tanks that show some substrate gives off a better contrast. Tomorrow I will take the first picture of my tank. It should have the flourite in it a betta and 4 neon tetras. Oh, and those dang pesky fake plants. Give me some more time and those dang things will be history! I will be watching my water parameters closely
