nabokovfan87 Posted January 5 Share Posted January 5 (edited) Hello everyone! I have a pair of questions and I want to ask those with much nicer tanks that I one day hope to have! I think it's an interesting question and would be fun to hear some perspective. I would genuinely love to hear from @Seattle_Aquarist @Mmiller2001 and @gjcarew on this first question if at all possible.First, simply put, please talk to us about this tank in this photo / video. How do you view it? I mean to say.... a lot of us look at a tank like this and go "wow, that's amazingly well done and beautiful." What sort of things goes on when you look at it? Do you start to perform some maintenance in your head? I won't say too much as to ask for an honest reaction, but I think it's something that might actually be helpful for some of trying to get from a box with plants to an "aquascape style" tank. Here is the link to the video itself, he does zoom in and discuss the tank further. Fuzzy photo intended! Quote Alright, serious question now though. I have some S. Repens and one of the talking points in this video was the stargrass in the foreground. He mentions that it's long and he's going to trim it. My question is specifically why? I want to get a longer portion of S. Repens in one corner for Oto eggs and fry, then have a carpet in a section of my tank. Bush style, but just something where it's a bit easier for some species in the tank to interact with the plant itself. I have a certain light setup and let it grow, it'll get some height. What am I missing? Is there an issue with that mindset of having a plant like S. Repens (or stargrass) and wanting to have it a bit longer than most people normally would? Is there an advantage to plant health by having it longer? I appreciate it. Thank you for the time!
