I'm not sure what is going on with one of my plants. There is something growing one of my plants. I only see this growth on one of my plants. Not sure if i need to take it out and add another plant in its place. Not sure if you can see the stuff on the pictures. Please help!!

That is a Java Fern, and it is making babies ;)

This is how the Java Fern propagates, it forms plantlets on the leaves, and eventually they will fall off and float away to be a new fern. Once they have a couple leaves and long roots, you can actually pluck them off the leaf and replant them elsewhere if you like.

ok, very cool. I was concerned i might have done something wrong and wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything to hurt my fish.

Thank you!!!!
