Oh, the hygro is a nice plant, and fills in nicely. If you don't have the high light like I do, it will do just fine, will just grow slower. If you can get some, I would get it. Great plant...

As for the plant that's coming out of the tank, it's not a lilly. That's a runner from my Ozelot Sword, and those leaves at each node are baby Ozelots. If out of the water, they flower. If put back into the water, they form roots, and you can cut them off the runner and plant as new plants.

Where in the world did all of that beautiful Echinodorus Tennelus go? You can't see it anymore! Poor little plant is not getting any light anymore because the other mosters are hogging it all.

I yanked them out, lol. They just grow too fast, and get too thick and start floating when the bottom layers die off. For me, it only took 2 weeks to get to that point, lol.

what kind of soil are you using should I use it in my tank? Its going to be a 36 gallon. Right now I have purchased black Small Pebble Wonder Rock. Would that grow plants like yours?
