    What sort of light intensity (WPG) is needed to grow H. difformis? Are there any hints or tips people can give about growing this plant? All help greatfully received.
    Many thanks from Bill.

    i believe it will grow fine in a low light non co2 tank, under higher light however the plant leaves will grow to be much finer and more "delicate"

    Cheers mate, good to know...always planning a new set up, but never have the cash on hand, so having to wait for crimbo and birthdays for handouts...sound familiar anyone?

    I have a dream...that one day, little black neons and little green neons, will play together and grow up in an opti white cube aquarium...

    Hhmm...have to cut down my pepsi intake, went a little weird there for a sec... :lol:

    All the best from Bill. :D

    SELL MY TANKS? now that's just crazy talk! Hadn't thought of holiday money. Thinks: now which relatives would be stupid enough to give a twenty nine year old who never goes away holiday money?

    COMING SOON TO A POLLING BOOTH NEAR YOU: BILL: EVIL, MANIPULATIVE OR JUST SAD. YOU DECIDE!!!

    All the best from Bill.

    oh yeah, just remembered.
    they have a large juwel vision at my lfs (aqua jardin, near gloucester) it has 5xt5 running 10 hours a day!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the hygro just stays low and grows along the substrate, looks gorgeous!
    as does the rest of the tank!

    Wow, sounds amazing, but very unusual. I'd never heard of it growing so low but then again, I have never seen a tank with that much light on it.

    Aaron, you come here flaunting your youth and wealth and lovely aquariums...jealousy does not begin to describe it.

    I must away and calm my fevered brow, insecurity really takes it out of you...

    All the best from Bill.
