    Hi Guys,

    I purchased some smaller plants for my tank today, so that I could get the plastic ones out from the front. As per usual... LPS don't know the names or normal planting practise of the plants.

    I bought 2 types of 'grassy-type' plants, and would like someone to possibly ID them, and just confirm that I have planted correctly. As far as I know, the one grass looks like normal "mondeo-grass" that is commony used in normal gardens. Is it an aquatic plant? Or is it something else?

    Pic 1 looks like Dwarf Hairgrss (Elocharis Acicularis)

    Chuck the mondo grass away, only good for outside...not an aquatic plant at all
