I love roots

    I don't know why, I've just always liked the look of roots in water, especially on plants like Red Root Floaters and Salvinia natans. I was watching the roots on my Salvinia waving in the current tonight and I just found it hypnotic!

    Should try taking a video of it but here's a still photo. Doesn't quite do it justice:)

    WOW! Me too, I don't have shrimp or fish yet. I sit in front of tank and just watch plants and lil tiny roots sway. It is relaxing for me and nice way to end a day. I cant wait til I find Red Root Floaters and Salvina natans for my tank. You do have some beautiful roots going on.

    Thanks!:) Another floating plant that I really like the roots of but haven't grown yet is Hygroryza aristata or Asian Water Grass. Epic roots!

    I saw the Hygro ones on Han Aquatics but they are not in my state. Cali don't make it easy for live plants to be shipped here. If I could I would have tank in every room. I would even replace my TV with a nice large tank.
