Not my tip, sorta the left side-to middle of my thumb(think i said index finger the first time, my bad, bit of confusion in english names for fingers).
I was cutting twards the finger(first time i do something that stupid, i always cut away from my fingers...) and the knife sorta forgot i only had to cut the tube and it decided to go ahead.

Thanks Austin. You only need 1 of each, in 2 weeks you'll have enough to cover lake Michigan at the rate they multiply.

The one that is floating with the roots hanging down... In the first pic.


"As floaters i have riccia, lemna minor, pistia and eichornia crassipes(i just love the flowers this plant makes even if i have yet to see them flowering in my tank)."

I only see one plant though? :S

A... well with the long roots it`s pistia BUT eichornia crassipes also has long roots but with a darker color.
The yellowish roots you see are from the pistia.
Strange thing is that i have pistia in all my tanks but this is the only tank where they have 10cm long roots(and growing) think is the lack of enough fertilization, in the rest of my tanks they only grow 5-6 cm...
P.S i saw at a LFS pistia with roots about 15-20 cm long, they looked simply amazing! The tank was full of them and the water looked like you were under a old oak tree.
