I guess so. Ludwigia will grow like a weed under the right conditions. I keep mine on a dirt substrate with liquid ferts, a 18 watt CFL bulb and DIY CO2. I get anywhere from 6-10 stems per week.

Wow. I'm not dosing anything in that tank because of the RCS in there, but hearing that makes me really want to set up a pure plant tank to fill up my main tank faster.

In the time between posts, I've already committed to buying a second-hand 10 gallon tank, pending inspection. I swear I'm going to end up with so many **** tanks lol

Edit: Tank was bought and returned due to leaks. Why do people insist on wasting my time and their own =/

1) not cambomba, some type of myrio though
2) no idea, could be edgeria najas
3) pogo erectus or could also be limnophilia hippodres (spelling is off on that one) not hornwort
4) alternanthera
5) ludwigia
6) no idea, not hornwort
7) anacharis narrow (edgeria najas I think is proper term)
8) hygrophilia polysperma
9) Java fern
10) does it have a rhizome? If yes anubias, if not then sword

None of the pictures are hornwort or cambomba....

You can check here to compare the myrios and the ludwigias

Flowgrow

Can you take new pictures of 2/7, some different angles?

This pic is also a pretty clear reason not to float plants for too long. They've turned squiggly!

Here's a pic of some 2/7.

I really doubt that 2/7 is anacharis. The leaves are way different from the type you find in stores

Mayaca fluviatilis was my guess.

Najas looks nothing like regular anacharis... on the assumption the seller mentioned there was anacharis I would say it's a safe bet... but I could always be wrong...

I saw an ad selling alternanthera, hornwort, and cabomba (and only those). When I got there, the seller had everything bagged up (in one massive bag). He told me where was alternanthera, hornwort, and cabomba in there. Turns out, he might not have known what was in his tank either.
