I had to add some more sand for the large swords, plus I ripped up most of the other plants so the water is still cloudy. I'll try to take some better pics later tonight when it's dark out.. so you can see better.
I took out a majority of my plants and now I just have various swords and some pennywort (and floating water sprite..?)
I've got Echinodorus Kleiner Prinz in the front left, it's supposed to stay relatively small. Echinodorus 'Rubin' (Red Rubin) behind that. In the middle of the background that's supposedly a Echinodorus Kleiner Bar. Next to that is Echinodorus uruguayensis. I've also got some small stems of pennywort throughout the swords in the background.
In the 'midground' are Echinodorus Parviflorus 'Tropica' and then in front of that there's some Lilaeopsis brasiliensis (Microsword) which I'm hoping will survive the distance from the light.
This is a new tank for me. I recently moved from a 28gal bowfront to this 37gal tank. Not totally sure if I love the plant arrangement, but I know it still needs to grow in. Should I move anything? The Red Rubin is supposed to grow pretty large.. The Uruguayensis is supposed to grow very tall, but pretty slender for a sword.. And I know at least the Kleiner Prinz is supposed to stay under 12".. not sure about if I want to keep the Kleiner Bar or not.. I also have an Ozelot coming in, which I know I don't have room for. Not sure if that'd look better than the Kleiner Bar or not.
Is one root tab per large sword enough? Using the flourish root tabs. I've also got a couple around the small swords and microsword.
Also installed my DIY spraybar today. :)
