Could someone please tell me what plants these are and their needs. thanks i know one is a cabomba but which type?and the other is a sword but it stays small and is growing really well thanks again for any help. IMG_9583.jpg
The first one is either E. Bleherae compacta, or E. Parvula.. Too hard to ID the other two... With the second plant, I need more light, and the other I need a picture zoomed out. I don't think it's cabomba.
The sword I believe is the Dwarf Sword in our profiles [click the shaded names to see the profile], Echinodorus parviflorus "Tropica."
Second photo is I think the stem plant Bacopa. Photo is a bit dark, but from the leaf structure on the stems I think this is it.
Third seems like Cabomba caroliniana, its in our profiles too. Looks quite yellowish, perhaps lacking nutrients. A complete liquid fertilizer will help all these. Seachem's Flourish Comprehensive Supplement or Brightwell Aquatics' MultiFlorin.
The first is a powder you mix with water, the second are substrate balls. The latter will help larger sword plants, but little else. The former will help everything. I looked at the ingredients, and it seems OK, though I've never seen or used these products. If you can get them and not the Seachem or Brightwell Aquatics I mentioned before, try the powder at least.
