    Day 1
    Pat (MyKiss) advised me to do an immersed approach to start. First, I was hesitant as I haven't tried it before. I was surprised how easy it is as you don't need to deal with floating plants especially the tiny carpet plants.

    Pre those pictures are day 1 pictures, I'll post the current pictures tomorrow, been busy doing some renos at home. There has been significant growth after a week especially the HCs. The melted Blyxa's came to life after adding some water. I think they don't like immersed.

    Covertune, please wish me luck. I hope everything goes well.

    A week after... The Blyxa Japonica was melting, so I decided to add water this time. Shhh. I got bored (excuses... excuses)



    I have added a few stem plants also, L. Aromatica, Tonina SP. Belem and Didiplis Diandra.

    Blyxa can't be grown emmersed, only submerged.

    Great layout and planting! It will look awesome, that HC is spreading nicely.
