Durban's Jungle - Floating log, Willow Leaf Hygro, Java moss on coconut, driftwood with Anubias, and of course Hornwort.


Urkle's Jungle: Willow leaf Hygro, Driftwood with Java Fern, and Hornwort.



I removed the Hornwort today and did a good vacuuming and left it out.

Just wondering - why did you decide to remove the hornwort?

It was shedding needles crazy. I also have a planaria problem i'm trying to get under control and they are the main culprit for organic material i need to suck up. They also need a good trim down. They're hanging out in a spare tank for now. :)

The needle shedding is why I don't care for hornwort. At first, thought it was me & my water conditions (very hard water), but hear from a lot of people that they just do that.

I am trying guppy grass as a floating plant & LOVE it so far!!! :)

Mine shed like crazy! Haha!
I need to get some more plants for the tank. I might just chuck the hornwort into my pond and let it grow.
I need a whole bunch of plants for my other 10 gallon. I was waiting till i get more money though. Plants can get expensive. =\

Wow vaygirl, your tanks are beautiful! I too want a 100% natural tank. I hate the fake "artificial" looks of painted gravel, shipwrecks, and plastic plants. Right now Gabe is living in a small unfiltered tank with a java fern (I have a 6500k flourecent light shining on it for 8-10 hours a day). I do 3 water changes a week and the plant is still doing great. 3 weeks now and its still green, healthy, and no leaves have died on me. Anyways, I plan on upgrading the tank to a filtered and cycled 2-5 gallon and I want more plants. What besides java fern/moss would you recommend? I want to try those betta bulbs (some type of apongeton I believe) but I hear they grow HUGE.
