Yep, and soaked them for a few hours afterwards too to make sure the driftwood was thoroughly de-tanninized. :P

Went to Pet Supplies Plus today (again) and picked up what I think is probably the ONLY Water Sprite in NE Ohio. :P It isn't C. cornuta, it's the thalictroides species, which has been added to the hole in the tree root decoration. How long do you think it'll take to grow across the whole surface of the tank?

My LFS stocks Water Sprite, so if you need more I could ship it to you. Or whatever other plants you need that they carry.

How nice of you to offer! I'd take it but I'm afraid it isn't necessary. :D One Water Sprite is all I need (for now, perhaps) and I can get the Anubius and Amazon Swords I have need of yet at my local Petsmart and Pet Supplies Plus.

Good to hear. Just throwing it out there in case you wanted something that wasn't available locally in the future.

Not an exciting update, but it is unclear when I'll be getting the rest of my plants. I'm not too bothered by this, as a small break from spending money is welcome by my mom. None-the-less, I can't wait to bring my baby bichirs home, one of the Petsmarts close to me how a beautiful silver-gray one that I hope will still be there after everything is finished.

Also, some questions:

Is it normal for C. thali Water Sprite to brown a little? Like a very slight tinge of brown. I'll get pictures later if needed.

How long does it take for Java Fern to root into driftwood?

And, how long will it possibly take for my Water Sprite to cover most of the water surface with 10 hours of daylight bulb light and a weekly dose of Flourish Comprehensive?

So, I got a little surprise today in that I got the rest of my plants today! (At least I think so) There is one piece of decor I wish to get, but it's on my on my Christmas list for later. Might get another piece or two of Malaysian driftwood as well... I think some more hiding places for the bichirs may be needed but I'll see what you guys think when I get pictures tomorrow.

I ended up buying two plants that were just labeled as 'assorted plant', they were nice and tall which is why I got them, but I have no idea what they are.

For the questions I asked earlier, I found out Java Fern take only a few weeks to root, but if anyone can tell me how fast Water Sprite grows that'd be great. :D

Comments anyone? I like how the look of the tank came out, but any opinions on how to make it better would be appreciated.
