    I've been trying quite diligently to aquascape my tank so it looks reasonably nice. :D I ordered a red tiger lotus because I wanted it as part of the center piece. Had everything planned... Well, lo and behold the company sent 3 bulbs vs. 1 and I've heard they sometimes do that to ensure that at least one flowers. Well, all 3 of mine are budding leaves so now I have NO idea how to aquascape my little 36" tank when all 3 start getting big.

    Any suggestions? Should I put them together and have a huge explosion of red? I also have dark green/red bunched plants as well.

    I need to post some pics to make this easier for advice. :)

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    This is a conspiracy by the industry to persuade you to buy bigger tanks.

    Congrats, they sound lovely.

    They'll be beautiful when big, right now just little tiny leaves. Not sure where I'll put them all but as the title says, a fun dilemma. :D

    Group them together until they become bigger than you want and then sell the ones you don't want to your LFS.

    Or you could go with them all over the back of the tank?

    Bunching them together and/or putting them towards the back are both good ideas.

    Maybe I should wait until they're big and then determine the best option(s). It's kinda difficult to decide right now because they're so small.
