okay and the smaller ones in the first pic?
have you kept them hydrocotyle sp before?

to be honest, i am looking for some kind of plant that will crawl and spread. Not the stem types. I have a scape in mind too.

this is he setup i have in mind...although highly out of proportion...the basic funda is going to be the small L shaped wood i have and behind that Hydrocotyle leucocephala and infront of that HC...going emersed only and not submersed.

if the tank is too small even for that, will just focus on the wood and Hydrocotyle leucocephala

or maybe add a step type thing and add moss on the top and glosso or other carpeting plants below. the moss will eventually flow down...looking like a waterfall. Lets see. Giving a front view next.

the plan was to add a small glass and make a partition....the smaller part willed with substrate and all and would have moss and would be sprayed regularly.

below would be at best 2-3 stones and hc with Hydrocotyle leucocephala on one edge near a stone. Assuming that its a vine type plant, it would eventually take volume. Lets see.

Somehow i feel that this project will be completed before the original one :P
