I picked up two cultured plants at petco - wanted to put a couple of plants in right away and not deal with bleaching. I think I will the next round of plants, as these are a little pricey. Anyway, I picked up "Assorted Anubias" and Java Fern "Narrow Leaf". The Anubias has very long thin leave almost like a sword. Do you know if all varieties should be easy low light plants? They had Argentinian Sword but not Amazon sword, do you know if that is the same thing?AngelTheGypsy said:
I usually go to petsmart, but we have a petco. Petsmart said all there tanks have the snails, so not sure I want to go there, since it is almost a guarantee. Petco's plants did look pretty good in their tanks.AngelTheGypsy said:I've gotten several in the tubes, some from other members and placed one order from aquatic arts. I really haven't had bad luck out of any of them, But the best luck I've had is getting them straight out of the plant tanks at petco......as long as it was actually aquatic. (mostly because of that jungle tank) Most that I've had shipped have taken time to recover and adjust.
Do you have these in the sand with the roots buried but not the rhizomes? Or do they need to be tied to driftwood, etc? I am familiar with plants like that in the yard but haven't ever planted anything in the tanks.AngelTheGypsy said:
Yeah, yesterday I did my first bleach cleaning of old decorations from my daughters tank. I am sure that the fish died from nitrates, now that I know stuff. But just in case it was disease and plus they have been sitting in a bucket for a year, I decided to go on the cautious side. Next to boil her old piece of driftwood. My daughter is letting him take it since she is not sure she wants another tank.AngelTheGypsy said:I did my first bleach dip yesterday (to get rid of algae, not snails) and I can't get the smell of bleach out of my nose!!!
Not trying to flood your thread with photos, but I'm visual...and please forgive the dirty tanks...especially the white one. With mysteries it's impossible to keep clean...planning to do away with the white asap.JRS said:Do you have these in the sand with the roots buried but not the rhizomes?

Do away with the white sand or snail? How many tanks do you have running? The angel is in the 38, but your 40 isn't up yet right? Where is the black sand?AngelTheGypsy said:planning to do away with the white asap
Hmm! I will have to look at it from that point of view.Punkin said:Just my opinion, I actually prefer the black silicone, I think it gives it a more finished, furniture look. But just my 2 cents
