    This is 1 day after planting

    i initially bought few pots of rotala rotoundifolia for the back, but while planting them, found out that its rather difficult to do so due to the limited area of clearance i have since this tank is in a display cabinet, so to save me the trouble future when it comes to trimming, i've decided to swap out for blyxa japonica and AR mini for the back. And with only actual height of about 10-12cm (less the soil), stem plants will need trimming way too often.

    However, since i already bought tropica's rotala bonsai and rotala vietnam H'ra and they are rather expensive, i decided to use them anyway, rotala bonsai should stay small and short, while H'ra should creep given the high lighting.

    Im thinking of buying emmersed xmas moss and placing them on the area where the wood protrudes..
