Well mine seems to have quite a bit if space around it. Hopefully it won't feel the need to kill some of my pretty plants.

The plant in my tank was a dwarf lily. They look similar to the red tiger lotus (although the red tiger lotus looks better).

Yes I've heard the red tiger lotus likes to strangle other plants, for my dwarf lily I just place a root tab under it and let it roll. They can be purchased in bulb form at walmart.

Right now I want it to remain bushy. I was told I just trim the shoot and it stays bushy.
Since it produces a new leaf practically every day, I may let it grow to the top later on. If it remains at the same growth rate.

Hello this is Louie's new home. It is a fluval edge. I do not fill the water to the top. I cycled the tanks about 4 months before I bought Louie. It is his first week in the tank and he loves it! I do not plan on adding any other fish. I do however plan on building a second fluval! Awesome tanks highly recommend! The only issue I have come across is the lighting. I plan on adding PADLITE to the top of the tank ! Thanks guys!

I started cleaning my 23 gallon tank at about 2pm yesterday, only to notice a horrendous smell - something had gone badly wrong and my plants were literally rotting to pieces. So, I pulled everything out, including the fish (is anything harder to catch than a determined kuhli loach?), dashed to the shops for more sand and plants, and did an emergency rescape. This is the very hasty result. There's also a pretty Tahi buddha in there in the back left corner on the little hill, but the reflection is kind of preventing him being seen.
