I need a new plant, but what?


21 Aug 2007
Chippenham, Wiltshire
Hi all,

Here's my tank:

The plant of the far left is Ludwigia palustris. And I'm bored with it. It grows too fast and keeps bending over towards the middle and covering up my M.mezianum which needs all the help it can get. I'm reluctant to rip it out at the moment though as I'm not sure what to replace it with.

Any ideas? I was thinking of something reedy, perhaps C. helferi? But I don't know how tall it gets. Vallis is too rampant.

I'm also thinking of putting some Steurogyne(sp?) around the wood on the right.

All comments gratefully received. Don't be shy!
