    What plant species are these please, so I know how to plant them?
    If that makes sense

    Do these all go into the substrate?

    Ambulia is the first and last plant I have the red / green plant not sure what it is though...

    I'd say so. I see spiral val there, what looks like elodea/anachris and cabomba. Other ones I'm not sure of but I'd plant them all in the substrate

    First and last is a different shade of green and is looks slightly different, is it the same?
    It's very similar anyways

    I just wasnt sure about some plants as don't some need to not be buried too deep? Like have some part above substrate?

    Ive put them in the water and the one on the left and right are very different
  7. FishywifeValued MemberMember

    So maybe one is cabomba and the other may be hornwort?

    I think the first and last one are Ceratophyllum demersum

    I think the third one is Aponogeton crispus

    The one on the far right looks like water sprite to me. Some people are saying cabomba, but I don't think any of those are cabomba. Red one could be Ludwigia repens or something similar, perhaps. I'm no plant expert though, I'm just helping through google searches.

    Sorry, but I cannot find what the second and fourth ones are.

    Haha, me too!
  11. Heather2131New MemberMember

    I'm really bad at this and I'm looking at them in person!
    Cabomba and hornwort certainly look like it but I don't know which
    But those two that look similar are definitely different

    Anacharis yeah I think so

    The third one spirals nicely and looks like spiral val

    Ludwigia repens looks right (the fourth red one)

    My Betta fish is loving them anyways! I've put them in the subrate, hopefully they'll do okay, not sure the light is good enough for them though

    What did the person you bought them from say they were when you sent them the pic?

    Left to right
    Red Cabomba (anchor don't bury, can be left floating or tied to something else)
    Anacharis (best left floating, it does not anchor except in fast flow tanks)
    Corkscrew Vallisneria (plant the roots, leave the crown *white part* slightly exposed, root tabs are best food for this)
    Ludwigia Repens (root or column feeder, can live off both - can be buried, the plant buried sideways will shoot side running shoots upwards)
    Green Cabomba (same as red). Hopefully this helps.
  14. Heather2131New MemberMember

    Is it a problem if I bury the cabomba?
    It looks pretty messy if they're just floating allover the place, not much to tie it too

    What does anchor mean?
    The first one isn't red at all too by the way, is it still red cabomba?

    Thank you!

    So if I order root tabs off eBay they'll feed of those?

    The plant weight (silver thing) is a good way to anchor them, it weights then down without having to bury them. The val will feed from the root tabs, if you keep them close together two will give them several months of food (as they grow and expand in the tank they may need them more often).

    Got 4 at the back there and the Ludwigia repens is at the front to the right (can't see in the photo)
    There's also a potted plant in there that came with the Betta, I don't know what it is
