It'll keep it in place (I hope) and make for pruning it easily. What do you think?? I did it with some anachris and it worked well. Like you, I can't have a mass of floating plants blocking out light that the other plants need.

That's a great Idea! I have everything I need to do it. (today)

Very nice tank!!

I just threw out enough pennywort to buy a new tank if I sold it all...lol. Okay, maybe not that much. My plants in the tank were actually beginning to wilt because they weren't getting enough light. Now it seems so bright to me! I might try the suction cup idea as well. Thanks, Kym!!

Sure thing! A little fishing line and a suction cup works very well for me. I couldn't find any decent pennywort anywhere and Natalie send me a HUGE batch. It was by far better than any I've ever purchased from any LFS or online plant place. I bet yours looked the same, too bad there was no more room for it other than the trash.

1077, if you try it post up some pics. We need to get you very comfortable working that camera and posting pics.
