Very large dragon rocks are planted with Hydrocotyle, Anubias and Hygrophila Pinnatifida. On the last, vertical shoots have to be removed, in order to achieve crawling growth. Growth on Hydrocotyle has to be put back into place regularly with a hand, in order to maintain a low and dense appearance.

Ludwigia sp. and Limnophila Hippuridoides create the dense, colourful background and the high Eleocharis species close the edges. The dense Echinodorus Tenellus has to be trimmed quite often, in order to prevent it from taking over the entire bottom.
