Hey they also have a new betta called twin tails that is COMPLETELY new and all the rage. Also this really shinny colored betta with short fins called Dragons. aka double tails and metallic PK's and they sell them for around $15....for poor quality fish...RIPOFF. I paid that for a good quality HMPK male from Thailand. He's only 3 months though but i'm growing him up nice. (code for he's a cow and eats everything i put in front of his face.)

Like I said, my cabomba lays flat and lifeless when out of the water while the hornwort maintains its shape.

Edit: as in the shape of the needles not going flat, the actual stalk part doesn't stand up on its own very much.

I suppose it's camboba then. It is pretty much limp and flat when out of water. also, it's really feathery, not hard. I'll try to get some pics soon :)

I just looked it up and its common name is "Myrio Filigree"
Interesting. I had been pretty sure that it was Camboba/Fanwort.

Yeah I bought one from Petsmart and it fell apart and made a mess after 2 weeks.

4 gallon SpongeBob kit turned into a full time hobby.

It does tend to explode, but if your lights are good enough it will grow faster than it dies at the opposite end. I just think it looks so nice if you keep it pruned.

Myrio loves quite strong lighting and plenty of nutrients. I had some native milfoil growing in aquasoil with very high lighting and it took over the entire tank.

I found if you didn't prune it regularly, the bottom part would get leggy and lose its leaves because not enough light was getting through.
