I don't think this tank is very well known, you might be thinking of ADA?
Star grass grows like a weed~ lol I have it growing in low and high light, you should definitely give it a go :3

that's what i was thinking of, i guess in aquariums all the acronymns are going to start with A. i'm probably going for one of the ones on truaqua myself, no idea what brand it might be, but it's at least in my price range. re: stargrass, really? then i'm definitely going to try to find some for the cube, thank you! the initial impression i got from people talking about growing it had been that it's one of those plants you have to have one million watts over, and co2, and a pentagram drawn under your tank to grow successfully. :p it does seem like a lot of nano tank enthusiasts get maybe a lil high strung about their plants though.

You totally just made me picture some kind of crazy plant growing cult. LOL!
It's a fussy plant to handle and ship... but does beautifully grown underwater XD

thanks! I liked the way the orange rocks looked against the soil, so I got black sand.
