    hang on... are you seeing this in the wild or do you mean this: ?

    I mean sure you can try it.... if it's scientific name os hermianthus (did i spell that right?) You should be good...

    HC is dwarf baby tears. and the leaves are the size of betta pellets.

    Hey, I have a question and was referred to you. I have a 40lb bag of crushed coral. It was originally bought for a saltwater tank. Can I use that as substrate for plants provided I add fertilizer? The bag says it will maintain a steady ph. My ph is 7.0 without it. Thanks!

    oops posted on my own wall by accident

    I said

    "oh LAND baby tears? lke the ones they sell in pots at the local market? those are entirely different species...
    your tank, if it's not deep... I wouldn't worry about it too much for now... especially if it's closer to the top than the bottom.
    wht happened with the fertile substrate...?

    you're talking about HC right? not HM? HM grows fine in a semi low tech aquarium. HC I'm not so sure. I'm growing it in my HOB, I didn't put any in my tank to test. It's converting to emerse leaves, so there was a large die off at first. you can see the new leaves coming up.
    the large leaf at the front is glosso

    Oh goodness, you're not going for an ADA tank are you?
    and you guys identified the nesaea pedicelleta I had floating around in my tank for me! I've been wondering what it was. lol

    Rotala is easier, in my opinion. You get nice color without the work. I do know that plants with strong reddish color like iron supplements.

    Haha, I want a porcupine pufferfish. I hear they have loads of personality and will stalk you for food. Someday, though. Puffers need big tanks.

    Yeah, I was considering getting the Green Brighty for stem plants. Special Lights, I think it's called. One of my LFS has it in stock. They carry all the ADA products although to be honest I'm not sure how much of it they sell since that stuff is expensive.
