Yeah they're definitely not reliable... apparently its very uncommon for one (much less two) bulbs to successfully sprout (at least thats what I've been told)... Grown plants seem like much less hassle to me.

You just started the tank, some of mine took 2 months to sprout. I also buried mine.

I've tried them in my other established tanks, and left them in for over 2 months and none of them sprouted. I doubt I'll put any in this tank.

So I added a couple more plants, and tied a bunch of the Java fern to a piece of mopani wood I ordered offline.
I also went to petco today and got some neon tetras, julii cories, and a bamboo shrimp for the tank. The girls picked on the tetras for a few minutes and then ignored them completely, which I was very happy about. I was worried they might bully them to death!

That is an absolutely gorgeous tank! I am so jealous! Now I can't wait to get my 30 gallon sorority set up!

Yeah it's HC. I ordered it off of aquabid and it got here super fast. If I buy anymore plants online I'll definitely use the same seller.
I can't wait for it to start forming a carpet either!
