Oh, I thought you were getting them live for some reason. Silly me!

I do plan on getting some live anacharis soon, though. I think my fish will LOVE it. He adores resting on plants.

I got some anacharis at my LFS tonight. I was happy when I got it home and discovered some pieces of duckweed had hitch hiked. I can't wait to add them to my tank. I'm soaking them in untreated water overnight to kill any bugs or bad things on them.

The apon bulbs take a while to get going but after a while they look really pretty. I've had one for over a year now and only in the last month or two has it really started to look good. I actually divided it tonight to put half in another tank. I also think that daily dosing of flourish excel has helped it come along. The more light you have the better they'll do.

I sprouted all of my bulbs in a separate container to make sure that they didn't start to rot in the tank.. I bought one of those mixed packs, and out of the entire thing the only thing that didn't sprout was the onion plant. My dwarf lily and apongetons both came through fine with mediocre lighting.

I only have the Apongeton ones. Just put them in the tank. I figure I'll just keep a close eye on them, and that the fish poop will help them grow more quickly.
