LOL, you should have been over at my place watching me place the wisteria yesterday. I finally found a "decent" spot for it, right on top of a java moss patch I placed last week. Was debating moving the java moss, but considering how stressed the fish were getting from the water change and a bunch of new plants to give them better hiding spots, I decided to leave it alone and will deal with it later.

Actually, if you use thread that's close to the color of the driftwoodd, you can just leave it on. When the moss fills in, you will no longer see the thread. And the thread will just deteriorate and not cause any problems. I don't remove mine.

Even though it is the same planet, underwater is a whole different world.

basically anything with crypt or java in the title, stay away from the common pitfalls such as buying amazon swords.
I would advise you upgrade your lighting if nothing else- you have to give the plans something to work with. Im sure your fish will aprreciate your decision to use real plants- i see it as a more natural environment.
