We posted at the same time. I kind of thought that would be the case. I don't need the Nitrate sponge as I clean my tanks 2 times a week so no problem there. I just like how it looks and thought it would be nicer if I could get it to stay planted. I had Cabomba for awhile and it looked so nice but then I had plant eating fish that did it in. Now, I can't find it anywhere here. The Hornwort has that similar "pine tree" type look to it. Thought it would be nice if I could get it to reach close to the top of the tank from the bottom. A pine tree forest in my tank. ha ha
