    Can you hide the heater behind the driftwood? ... that would improve the look from the front of the tank

    The heater is so big, so I do t think it would be hidden “enough”, but it doesn’t hurt to try! ;) Thank for the tip! :)

    I agree, next time I go to my LFS, I will look for one. Anacharis is supposed to be a background/midground plant, but mine haven’t grown to be that tall....yet....:p

    you can still see the heater...if you move the drifwood a small distance to the left , it will be totally hidden. Tank is really coming along great.

    They are really slow growers.

    Ok, so I tweeted it a little and it worked! You can still see the top of it, but other than that, it is now a spy heater! :lol:

    What are your guys thoughts on plants from like a PetCo? The ones in those little plastic tubes? Because I am going to one tomorrow for supplies, and I wanted to get some Amazon Sword plants. :)

    That’s where I got mine. The ones in the tubes are the best because they don’t have snails.

    Ok, I might just pick up 2 Amazon Swords, any specific “type” of plant I need to look for? Because I know there are at least 2 different kinds of Anubis, and I don’t want to get the wrong one! :)

    i sorry, I was thinking of the Anubias. The anacharis grows fast. You can cut the anacharis and start more stems.

    I think the Amazon Sword is a good beginner plant. I always go for beginner plants. Take your phone and if you see a plant you like just look it up and see what is said about it. I stand there in the store for 30 minutes sometimes Googling stuff.
