Looking good! Is that pennywort in the back right in the pics? A big chunk of that floating on the surface will help your fry hide!

Yea biokid, I got her at the same time as the other dalmatian molly. It sure is promelas! I just purchased it yesterday. So it can live just floating, roots out and all?

Awesome, thanks!! I do have a question though. I turned OFF my bubble wand, since it drives the CO2 out of the water, but since it's been off my fish act like their having a hard time breathing. I thought the plants were going to create oxygen. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Yep, I have pennywort in my tank and it works great as a floating plant! The roots will sprout out at each node, and you'll see the mollies picking at them from time to time. You may want to start up a thread in the plant forum about your airstone. It's true that plants will create O2 through photosynthesis so as you add more plants you won't need any type of bubble system eventually.

The green with white edges looks like a non aquatic one but then again i do not know all aquatic plants out there.

Well it was sold to me as an aquatic plant at petsmart, so to be honest, it wouldn't surprise me in the slightest if it wasn't. Should I take it out? Thanks for the nice comments everyone!
