I have a suggestion for your nippy guppies. Hold your receipt for their new home up to the fish tank glass and show them how much money you spent on them, maybe they'll settle down a bit.

If only that would work it would be great. I am a little disgusted with the goings on since purchasing this set. First, I got it set up and had to run back to the store because the thermometer was missing in action. THEN this morning I notice moisture INSIDE the heater. I had to run that back today and got a different heater. How irritating. Add in another $10.00 in gas for these free guppies

Thanks for changing the profile Byron. It didn't matter I was just curious as to other folks experience with this plant. It is different looking then other plants that I have so... Nice change, I hope.

wisteria grows like a weed in my tank. I think its a nice looking plant and does a good job of filling in spaces quickly.

Mine has exploded in my tank! Purchased them from Petsmart about 5 wks ago, they are already about 12" tall and 12" wide. They are a very vivid green color and filling in the tank nicely. Best looking easiest plant that I have. I am starting to trim and add to another tank, waiting to see how this works out.

Sik80 and Brad, Do you guys have any current pictures of your Wisteria in your tanks? I am curious as to what I have not looking like others. I know it says the leafy part can vary. Just curious to see others plants.

My Wisteria is to the right of the Pennywort in this photo: (and remember when I told you that Hygrophila corymbosa grew like a weed in my tank? That's it on the far left, up against the back wall of the tank)

I'm pretty sure it depends on temperature... could be hardness...

When I was treating for ich, it looked really wierd... Almost like aunt kymmies first pic.

My water is as hard as concrete, so I would assume that's why mine looks the way it does.

It looks perfectly normal to me. Remember all, that this plant is very variable in its leaf shape as a result of water conditions and light. I have had the same stem grow differently over a period of months due to varying light and nutrients.

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]
