I got some free Echinodorus vesuvius today too that I have to figure out what to do with. Not sure if I want to put it in this tank or another one.

The new plants (while they live)

I stuck the Hygro in. Not sure if I like where it is, but again I suck at aquascaping. My hope is that if I manage to keep it alive that the runners will attached to the rocks around it.



Fish arriving tomorrow. Fedex is strange, but that is a whole different story.

I haven't heard of this plant till you just mentioned it. From the pics online of it it looks really cool.
How big does it get?

Btw your tank is looking good!

Thank you both.

According to Tropica it gets between 4 to 8 inches tall. If it's 8 than that means I'd have to use it in the background. Don't really have the space so it is going into my 29 gallon.

Oh wow soo it doesn't get huge then. In a smaller tank it would make a cool looking background plant.

In you 29 gallon are you going to use it as a middle ground plant?

I'm going to try. I need to trim the 29 really good and plants some new things in there. I always seem to get free plants when I order some (that sword was my only freebie). I have tons of mid/background plants in that tank so if I can't find room I'll give it to my grandma. I wish I knew if it would stay short I'm in need of foreground plants.
