Hi all,
I love the Ceratopteris, it is s real favourite of mine. How do you get on with Hygroryza aristata? I've tried it a couple of times, but it always dwindles away. I thought it might be a water hardness issue (tank water is soft), but yours seems to be doing very well.

cheers Darrel

Those are some beautiful tanks. Thanks for sharing the videos, too. It really adds another dimension to be able to HEAR the tank and SEE the plants swaying ever so slightly
