    Cool tank!

    Unfortunately, the variegated plant near the middle and the plant to the left of it appear to be non-aquatic. They will eventually die and pollute the tank. Any chance you could return them?

    Hello stanman,

    Great looking tank!! I believe I have the same plants you do that is in the right corner... Did you have a hard time getting them to stay planted? I have gravel too and they just won't stay put! They are fast growers too...

    The one on the left has been growing quite well, but now that you say it, the one in the middle does look odd. Any suggestions on what to put there if I take them out. I admit I am kinda new to planted tanks.

    I had a problem to, I have three inches of gravel,and had to go almost all the way down to get it to stay.

    i think i actually have a similar plant like in the middle but petsmart had it itemised as aquatic havent had any issues in 3 weeks.

    That's because non-aquatic plants often take longer than 3 weeks to start having issues. I had some "mondo grass" once before I knew any better that seemed to do ok for a couple of months, then started rotting away.
