    Hey all,

    Well, several weeks later with no trimming and this is what I have now...

    The plant is totally algae and detritus free due to the high flow it gets. It constantly sways like a sea grass and is really attractive IMO.

    I really like the combination with the darker/heavier anubias coffeefolia and this combination will figure prominently in my next scape.

    I will trim it soon but is so pretty this way I had to let it grow out to see what happened.

    The color/shimmer on this plant is just beautiful but I can't really capture it. Looks better in person is all I can say...

    Take care.

    Under the high flow required to keep it clean do you notice any pearling?

    Hi,

    No I do not. But when trimming during c02 period and all flow is off, I will see pearling from any cut blades....
