Holy cow.. so I ordered some java fern online. I figured the plants would be like 5-7" tall.. negative, these things are huge. I knew that java got this big, but I figured I would plant it small, it'd grow slow and I could just break off leaves that got too large. I'm not sure I like it. I guess it'll probably look better when it's growing new leaves and my bacopa fills in the rest of the background....?
I tied the rhizomes to a piece of small plastic pipe and stuck the pipe into the sand a bit... should this work?
I love the length of this tank, but 7" of width is tough to work with!
