Promising so far. The only question I have is the rhizome you tied to the middle rock, would that not totally obscure the central part of the hardscape ones it grows out?

it was actually attached to the rock from being in the other tank I pulled the rocks out of. Once it starts to take off and if I cannot make it look natural there I will just pull it off.

I think it will look great with the E. triandra growing down over the rocks. It should do that with good lighting.

I am using the ADA 27 watt PC light fixture over the tank so I think it is plenty. Plus it is allready starting to grow over the rocks.
