    Has anyone ever used Spaghetti rock?

    Hi, I have 15dkh water out of the tap (yuk) and my crypts are fine; in fact the only plants I seem to struggle with are some of the finer leaved ones (Cabomba etc) and mosses which take about 6 months to attach! I have pH 7.5ish though.

    Please help me improve my tank!

    I've been looking at the Rotala and it does look good. I've only just upped the lighting enough to grow it and the hygro I have at present doesn't bush up very well - I've just cut a fair bit off so it looks even worse!

    Please help me improve my tank!

    Hi, sorry about the quality of the photo, but if you can make it out clearly enough, I'm trying to improve the layout and would appreciate any constructive criticism on how to do it! The very bright bits at the front are riccia stones in case you couldn't see it very well! The crypts on the...
