Their roots are fast becoming established and penetrating my silicon sealant. If you want your tank refurbished, pulling that plant would be a bad idea as it also pulls the sealant thus leaking would become a possibility. Hence I threw that plant away.

I'll not stick to plants that establish too fast. Hmmm...my Nymphaea stellata is still growing like crazy even if I don't use fertilizers and CO2.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
