Microsword or Hairgrass.
Which is more soft&fine? Which is shorter? Which is easier to grow?
My pH is 7.8, GH is 9 and KH is 4.

I did not find it difficult to grow at all. It fills in very quickly and only requires the occassional hair cut across the top. My nanocube had this plant as a foreground:
Mm, mmm, beautiful. That kind of beauty and encouragement are what keeps me all excited.
I was quite surprised where you spoke of tearing it down. Did you?
Anyway, thanks!

BTW, I've invested in quite a bit of Flourite. Flourite is not your first choice?

I personally don't like the color (too red) or texture of Flourite. I don't like the fact that I have to rinse it out well before using, either.

Eco-complete still remains my substrate of choice because of the softer/rounder granules and pleasant black color.

Florabase is o.k.

Yes, I did tear that nano cube down. It also shattered into a gazillion pieces when it was shipped via UPS ground (seriously, the thing was completely and utterly shattered into tiny glass shards...I don't know what the heck they were doing with it while it was en route). At least I got partially refunded for the damages...

Barbels...I planted some Microsword about a month ago and it is not doing anything that I can see (very boring). On the other hand Hairgrass for me is very easy to grow and spreads like wild fire. The Hairgrass is finer & shorter.

tsunami... Why did it arrive in pieces, because UPS is famous for that. Have you ever seen them handle packages, put fragile on it and they toss it around even more. :lol:

The vertical growth of lileopsis(SP?) is weird. Especially when it reaches the front glass. It looks unnatural to me. Hairgrass is a beautiful plant that will grow in high and low light.
