Great Pictures! The plant in the first picture to the right of the rotala, what is it? I have some in my tank also but can't remember what it's called. It grows quickly too, i've had to trim mine several times in two months.

THAT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!wow those leaves really reach up for the top of the tank. Mine kinda lay flat on the sand sometimes; does that mean they are getting "beaten down by the light" maybe?...just a thought.

Does the tiger lotus get its nutrients from the substrate or the water or a combo of the two?

From the water.
I had found it does grow better in dimmer set ups then high end bright set ups.

Do you have any super big-bully in the tank that could knock the plant around? They're pretty thin after all...

Great pictures, Natalie! Thanks for sharing those. I really do love the Emperor's. I never really knew about them until this time around in the fish world....third time in. The owner of the LFS here....that is her favorite fish.

My RTS is the biggest in tank...he picks up a lot of sand in his mouth and spreads it around the tanks, leaves a lot on the lotus leaves though, but he won't be in there much longer.

Naw then I don't think it him causing you that issue. Do you have extremly hard end water or extremly soft end water?
How quick does it grow would you say? I mean like 1 new leaf each week or maybe 1 every 2 months...?
