Exactly, ugh. Its almost foul how it sheds its nettles. I like my tanks debris-free, and it bothered me SO much.

Hear hear. I dont know everything, but if Im answering your question, which obviously you dont have an answer for...Im deserving enough of respect in the fact that I have an answer, knowledge, that you dont.

I dont know if you were around for it, but I had a serious run-in with a woman who freaked out on me, mostly citing my age... She couldnt even spell in a way that was understandable.

Lady- I may be 19, and you may be whatever with kids, but in the end...

I know and you dont, so listen and learn! LOL! What's learning without listening, eh?

Ok so quick question with regards to the anachris - doesnt the stems go icky if you plant it? That happened to all of mine, and I really would love to plant some of it. I take about 4 or 5 nodes of leaves off before planting and it always goes manky on me.

Give it time. It sometimes loses its leaves when adjusting. Dont use excel as a fertilizer and dont go above 80f if you can manage. It sends roots in a few weeks. :<

The debris thing was my problem as well. And I don't think I was around for that. I hat that though. My fiancee fights with people on twitter all the time over that same issue. She is really into politics and she gets death threats and all kinds of things from it.

P.S. - I think we went way off topic on this one. Lol.

Thanks I will pick up some plant food for them today. I did remove them from the bunch. I read somewhere it was better for the plants if they are loose and not bunched together.

The only thing I suggest, if you havent, is to take the first half inch at least of leaves off the plant, as they'll rot if under the gravel. Fertilize if you want, which will make them grow, grow grow! I use Aqueon Plant food (liquid ferts work well with anacharis, because its a water column feeder)-- it keeps them happy! If that is the only plants in that tank, half the dose per directions (ex, 1 tsp/5 gallons, use 1/2 that), because thats not a lot of plants a the moment :D

Woops, you beat me! Thats what I get for opening too many windows, lol.

If you want to keep them together, loosely tie with a bit of string.

Also, Ive found excel melts anacharis D; Both through research and personally.

Why is this thread not a sticky? It seems very well developed and a FAQ/Beginner's guide to plants.
