Dragonflie, that tank is beautiful! I have sand in my 10g, and I love it! I find it so much easier to clean than gravel and it looks wonderful. What is that floating plant called?

Wellll.....it is fake. LOL A fake duckweed I think, to be precise. While animals love me, plants have a loathing for me that is unparalleled. I can't grow anything green unless it has scales.

I managed to kill a java moss. Something I was told was hardy enough it would "grow in a toilet" to quote exactly. And I still killed it. :(

But thanks for the compliments. :)

Moss isnt THATTT easy ;) Too much light or the wrong fertilizer will kill it. Too high of temps (80'F+) will stunt its growth, too.

Plants arent that scary, dont worry! I implore you try again :O

Indeed I did.

Ok well I feel better about the java moss. ;) I tried a hornwort once too...and it was like a christmas tree died in my tank. It took months to get all the needles out.

lol at some point I might be willing to try again, but I won't deny that plants are scary for me, probably more scary than trying the sand for the first time.

What do you mean it doesn't go together? It totally looks like a mediterranean beach somewhere with some Greek or Roman remains overlooking from the cliffs.

Yeah, I know what you mean about plants. I got a java fern from petsmart once, lady told me it was impossible to kill. It was dead in less than a month :( I will check out that plant thread, maybe I did something wrong.

Chances are more likley she sold you something that wasnt java fern at all..

When in the petstore, dont trust the employees... even if they THINK they know what they're doing. Sighhhh!

If you go to petsmart, the ones in the tubes, provided theyre aquatic, are great :)
Java fern, anubias and their swords are usually all they have that are real.

I buy from sweetaquatics :)
