OK so it was suggested to me in a different thread that this plant would satisfy my floating plant obsession (Nymphaea lotus). Thanks Lupin!
However I'm a little scared to get one. I have a 32g and I read that this plant can get quite large... is there a way to keep it trim without making it look like I gave it a bad haircut? Will this plant take over my tank? Also, my tank is covered... would I need to reduce the water level in there to account for the floating leaves and potential flower and will the light bulbs fry it to a crisp? (2X 20W)
I'd like to hear your thoughts if you have this plant in your tank.
