Oh!! I read about them floating but I thought it was to get more light!! lol If it floats it's growing?!?!? DEADLY!! That's what I want! Then I get cut it up and make baby balls :p Actually I don't know where to cut it so I don't kill it :/ Is it the very middle that I cannot cut?

I roll it around it in it's glass so that it gets even sunlight, I didn't know about it spreading out!! lol Thanks for the tip!
Well, while I'm treating my Laki I'll keep it in the window. I have such a craving to see what betta's are at the store when I go get aq salt!! Bf will kill me!! lol

Cool!! So they don't compete with each other for food?? I know they compete with bad algae but I seen many people's tanks with multiple moss balls. I really like the look if them!!

PS, I never even knew they existed until I asked the PetSmart employee what they had in the way of beginner aquatic plants for bettas. Our PetSmart actually employed people who know what they're talking about it seems!! I've been impressed with the employees there thus far. (It only opened like 2 months ago)

Those are Albino Bristlenose Longfin Pleco's I have had them sense they where the size a Quarter...

He's actually about 3.5 inches now, there are 4 of them in that tank.. I would say every once ina while the compete, but thats because ones a Male and 3 are females... and hes pushy..

In that tank they are not competing, The bio load is on the heavy side.

Right now in that tank there is:

6 Multi-stripes Pygmy Loaches, imported from Cambodia ( they are Wild, not Domestic ) Straight from the river

4 Albino Long fined Pelco's

16 Melanotaenia boesemani Fry about 3 months old

5 Assassin Snails, and some offspring I will be selling soon..

And about 30 plants..

Its also a High Tech tank on a 24 hour cycle

CO2 injection
10 hours of dual 8400K Day light
14 hours of 453n Moonlight
All automatic

Just a question. I'm on the website suggested earlier, are there any good plants I can get for beginners (ie, hard to kill)?? What's the light and heat specifics for things like anubias, banana plants, java fern and java moss??
