depends if you want stems or grass.

acicularis will reach the surface nicely.

i've just grown an array of stems in my 35L. just regular pruning will keep stems low. cardamin lyrata was lovely in my tank, mid ground though.

m umbrosum will fill the back, in fact it'l fill the front too :wideyed:

lilaeopsis grew well too, once it rooted :D foreground i know....with the 2 x 11w

Hi
take a look at hellofalumps nano in the journals section,regards john
wow I got a mention! *big up the ego!*

I'm using blyxa.

I also thought about using E.vivipara, but haven't tried it so can't really comment. Because nano's are not too deep, I figured with the vivipara it would reach the top and need trimming before it started branching out and getting messy. Like I said though, I haven't tried it, that's just my theory, which is unproven.
