Shrimps love fine feshy plants, and especially in the foreground a beautiful green carpet of Cuba Dwarf Pearlwort, Lilaeopsis or also of Mini Needle Cress or Dwarf Needle Cress is a very great eye-catcher.
Unfortunately, foreground plants are not easy to put into the aquarium. Their short roots make precise work necessary, and often the small seedlings float upwards despite all caution during water filling and then flood the water surface. It is all the more tedious to get them back into place in a filled aquarium.
So much easier and more attractive is the design of the foreground in the planted aquarium with the ready planted Scaperpads made of stainless steel. Here you will find the proven foreground plants Cuba Dwarf Pearlwort Hemianthus callitrichoides, the Dwarf Needlewort Eleocharis pusilla and of course the Brazilian Grass Lilaeopsis brasiliensis. ScapePads come in small and large.
Soon the foreground grass plants outgrow the pad, quickly the initially relatively straight edges of the pad are broken and covered by the natural growth of the foreground plants, and the foreground becomes evenly vegetated and just looks attractive with the even green lawn.
Especially the Brazilian grass Lilaeopsis, but also the Dwarf Needlewort propagate via runners and thus quickly grow into a closed green area. Optimal also in an Iwagumi layout, which reflects a stone structure in a grass landscape.
Even the hard-to-plant Cuba Dwarf Pearlwort gets a really good start thanks to the stainless steel pad, allowing it to root undisturbed in the substrate without floating up and causing the fine roots to lose their grip in the soil.
