Actually, the best place for R. macrandra is in the BACK of the aquarium.
It's is a _very_ fast grower when it is doing well, and you'll have to trim
it a couple of times a week to kee pit from blocking the view of plants
behind it.

I like it with a big broad leafed plant sort of diagonally in front of it.
Some mid-sized Echinodorus work well, or my favorite, although it is a slow
grower, is Anubias barteri var. coffeefolia.
