    I got this plant a while ago. It was marked as cryptocoryne but I don't know what kind. To me it looks kinda like "Cryptocoryne Balansae".

    Yes Crypts have always been one of my favorites. I think i'll plan some of these for my 30gallon :) if not i'm sure I could always squeeze some in my 65 gallon :) Plants are the best thing that could have ever happened to aquariums!

    Me too! I LOVE aquarium plants and, as I've said on another thread, don't care at all about my yard ;) I have more aquarium plants than I know what to do with and am expecting 20 more tomorrow and maybe even more a few days after that.

    Plants are awesome. I wish to get more plants to fill in the empty spots in the back of my tank. What kind of plants are you getting?

    I'm getting some A. Reineckii mini and downoi, 10 of each. I already have some regular A Reineckii that I'll put that next to and the downoi on the front left. And I might be getting a bunch of hygro agustifolia, of which I already have a few.

    I really like your tank. What is the plant you have the dw and all over the place that has the broad circular leaves? I love it.

    It is "Brazilian Pennywort". It's a great plant and grows really fast!

    Yeah it's an overall great plant. And grows very fast. It's perfect for a betta because the plant has big broad leaves so the betta can chill on them .
