I had one of these about a month ago, was a neat surprise, I think the stem is still there even though the flow is gone.

Aponogeton, yes? I've never seen a double before, don't know how rare that may be. You could pollinate it and take seeds, it is the only way to propogate apponogeton except for the one species that produces adventitious plants, Aponogeton undulatus.

And yes, very fine photos.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
