Lots of plants for the skilled aquarist. Vivid colours and vigorous growth require optimal lighting, as well as addition of the proper amount of fertilizer and CO2 - But other than that, it is really not that difficult. Hemianthus, Didiplis and Bolbitis all thrive in such good conditions, just as Rotala macrandra and mini-Alternanthera will develop optimal, deep-red colours.

Tip! A dark ground layer reflects less light than a light ground layer. Only use a very dark ground layer, when there is plenty of light on the aquarium.

Note: Plant "I" on the drawing is Myriophyllum tuberculatum which is no longer produced by Tropica. You can replace it by another red stem plant.
