Thats good because i know i dont have any special lighting. I was kinda worried when i got home. I looked up some things and read some articles that said the same thing you tell me. Then others say it does not like soft water, which i have. Some say it needs bright lighting. Maybe they flourish more in brighter lights.

They do look better in high lighting but all the same, you don't have to spend much for that plant.

Great thats what i am hoping for. My parrots pick at it here and there but they have other important things to do. Parts of the plant where a little dark when i got it from the store. Just bits here and there. Is that bad? There are also little pod.seed like structures growing from the stem. What would that be, a flower?

Most likely flowers but I had never seen mine do that except my Egeria densa which does flower but only during summer season. Your plant is fine.

thanks for the information once again. I try to do my best with the aquariums but sometimes information is either wrong or cloudy . Then things start to get mest up .Learning everyday........... any other low light plants i might try that wont be food to my fish? I like the look of the real plants.

Amending the last post...It could be new plant shoots.

Java ferns and anubias are tough. Try them but these are also slow growing plants so don't expect them to grow much. Java moss is another one but keep a spare and test if the blood parrots will eat them. Java moss can grow rather fast though.

Could I replace the 30 gallon hood light with another light that might benefit plants better?The tank is a 30 long.

Fluorescents are much better than incandescents. If yours is incandescent, then definitely replace it.

I have a fluorescent bulb. Im pretty sure? Incandescent are your stantdard house bulb. Flourescent are long tube like bulbs filled with gas that reacts to electricity. Correct? If so that is what i have.
