I am terrible with this plant! For some reason bacopa just hates me and even under high light and with a fertile substrate and liquid CO2 all its leaves would melt off from the bottom up until I was left with this atrocious looking stub.

Be interesting to see how it does floating. I've found 'traditionally' planted stems take a while before they realise they aren't planted and adjust to floating life.

I still do love the look of it though.

Haha, jk. But seriously, I really loved the look in one of my tanks, but hated it in another. After a week, I hate it in the first tank and love it in the second one. I can't seem to figure out how I feel about it. But if it grows, it stays.



Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?

I am great with aquarium plants they almost always survive but I dont know the name of most of them.

I liked them when I first bought them! When they had leaves! Their turning into bamboo-looking naked stems now, lol!
