thanks...


the floating plants are becoming a pain, every week im throwing away a handfull of it,and its growing too well, the bottom of the stalks are almost touching the sand if i left it go unchecked for a couple of weeks, the fish and snails love hanging out in it though so ill keep it. its frogsbit
i put some dwarf water lettuce in last week and its growing a bit,it only gets an inch deep into the water so it may be better for smaller tanks in the future



ive also go amazon sword, java fern, anubias, marimo moss ball,java moss and a couple of other unnamed plants..

i suspect that the biggish plant on the left back corner of the tank is some sort of house plant,the stem seems very thick,ill see how it does in there for a couple weeks i guess ill find out if its aquatic or not

I would like to get something like that for my tank, currently I have a bunch of stem plants floating (hoping they'll sprout some roots soon).

Does the frogbit seem to block out a lot of the light for the other plants?

i guess it can block out some light,i usually just throw out a handfull when it is totally covering the top,usually i keep some gaps up there so light will get through

It breaks my heart to hear you're just throwing it away! Have you considered selling it? 'course I'm sitting here jealous seeing how well it's growing, lol.

thats frogbit floating??
NICE!!! mine dont have roots anywhere comparable to that!! I wonder what we are doing differently. Probably has to do with your tank being NPT and mine being gravel...but still. HMM.

I LOVE your tank!!

i bought a piece of driftwood with some anubias on it for like 8 bucks one day at my lfs and i talked the guy into throwing 5 pieces of frogsbit into the bag for free..

the tails on it were only about 2 inch max when i first got it,for a while i had gravel in the tank and the max i got was maybe 2 and half inch, when i switched to npt,it multiplied faster and the tails doubled in length,i guess the organic dirt much give it loads more nutrients to grow big..its like a little floating jungle up the top of the tank
