As far as mondo grass goes...its partially aquatic (I have it in my 29g). You can keep it fully submerged for a long time before it starts to yellow/dies! I have had mine fully submerged for months now and have had no issues with it trying to die or anything!!! I love the look, and dont mind replacing it every 6 months if need be as long as it looks good in my tank (I have artificial mondo grass too...but the real looks too awesome!).
Thanks!
The mondo grass is gone already. I like the way it looks just did not like the idea of buying a plant that is going to die no matter what I do. It's like being doomed from the beginning LoL

some updates

Just wanted to share some more pics. I have added some jungle val. Had heard that they do better when planted as a group. Also moved some of the rocks around. Not sure what else I will do but am thinking that there is something missing . But that is me I always think that about everything I do. LoL Thinking I might also wait till the plants fill in some and go from there.

When you say "something quite different from fish tanks" It is not something bad is it? I promise it shows my video when I click on the link from my phone (which is where I do most of my uploads to this forum from )
