Turns out, I'm never going to stop rearranging this tank. I don't think the Anacharis is ever going to get planted. I don't want to stress it by rooting it/then up rooting it(rinse and repeat)
It is doing quite well. some lovely shoots are coming up/what was tanish brownish is now greening up nicely. Only a few pieces didn't make it. They will be missed :'(
Also, the big fake anacharis was getting annoying to clean of brown algae. It was up rooting it. soak it in hot water. give it a scrub/replant it. OR just rub each tiny little leaf while keeping it rooted. Each way was tiring and annoying. the plants I added in the back(to keep the REAL anacharis from getting battered by the filter) are easier to remove brown algae from.
The one inside the log won't float. So i propped it up to where it will receive light and look pretty.
