Inga, I think your tank looks lovely. I think I recall you found out to plant the Pennywort, not leave it as a floating ball, right??

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Yes Kymmie. I planted about half of the Pennywort but it isn't doing real well. It shrunk down to about a third of what I started with and now it is just sitting there. It is in the back next to the Anacharis As pieces are falling off of the floating ball, I am planting them in the front by the driftwood. So far, that looks to be alive but not growing yet. At least it didn't die.

Any thoughts on additions or moving things around or anything? How about planting things next to the filter intake? There is still quite a bit of space back there but I wasn't sure if I should plant something there. I am a little worried about the heater as well. Does it matter if a plant is right next to the heater? I suspect that the Amazon Sword will get bigger and might be touching it a lot more.

Also, any thoughts on the Rotala? Do you think I should just give it up and remove it or keep it in there for awhile yet? It looks rough but I fear it is the second favorite plant to pick at behind the Pennywort. It just seems like such a fragile plant. Maybe my Barbs are too rough for it.
