Thnx for the tip Boredomb if thats the case I will float the other one as well. They made a big enough mess just putting them in hahaha. There are many other plants I can use for ground level.

2" is minimum for me... I think 3-4 " is ideal not more than that I suppose.

LoL yeah it tends to do that when you transfer it until it settles in. I have this same plant in my Betta tank. I just leave it floating as I can't get the stupid thing to stay in the substrate.

Is there a way to stop the hornwart from floating over to my filter ? Maybe fishing line? Or some another way Im not thinking of?

you could try fishing line. i let mine go free but i do also have a large amount of dwarf water lettuce in my tank that helped keep it in place.

fishing line worked great . But now I have another question. It seems that the hornwart brought along a few snails. Is this good or bad ?

I will update the pics soon and try to get the neons in it.

Good or bad depends on your thoughts on them. LoL

Some ppl HATE THEM! Others love them.

Snails when kept under control are beneficial to a tank. They clean up organics in places you can't get to otherwise. They do more good then bad as long as you keep the population under control. That's has a lot to do with why ppl hate them. In the right conditions they can over populate a tank quickly.

thnx for the reply Boredomb. I think they hitched a ride on the hornwart. Started with 1 now we are up to 10. All very very tiny. It seems as if there are two different kinds of them.

Most likely the Hornwort had snail eggs on them then. The three most common kinds are bladder/pond, Ramshorn, and Malaysian trumpet snails.
