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.

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!
