GSP covering the bottom or the wall

i would love to see those who have GSP covering their tank walls or the bottom pane of the tank. i have a bare bottom and without anything on the bottom, there's this emptiness. i would like to fill it up with GSP even though i understand they can grow like weed.

another reason why i want to see a setup like that is because i also have a FW tank and have always wanted some carpeting plants. please show some pics.

Neither of these are mine but both are examples of what your looking for, and both are awesome tanks

Here's a recent pic of mine growing up the overflow wall. It has since spread even further up the wall and is even starting to grow onto my red cap. I've had to prune it a few times already. Click image for larger version

Here's a pic when I first placed it against the overflow (you can see the red cap and GSP in the top left of the pic). Click image for larger version

thanks guys. my bare bottom is a landfill for detritus. so I'm trying to cover it up with GSP and add more flow aiming toward the bottom to keep the detritus afloat

Though a neat idea...I think that this would be awful to manage when trying to keep this stuff off your rocks.

I grow this stuff very fast. About a square inch every other day.

One of the taotronics LEDs or similar would be perfect over that size tank and great bang for your buck.
