    I love plants, think they are very beneficial to the entire tank and fish in particular but these got so overgrown it was out of control.

    Now I can see the fishes so much better.

    Lots of filter cleaning too so i’ll Monitor ammonia for a few days.


    I meant to do before and after photos but the order got mixed up.

    Your tanks are gorgeous! What’s that little carpeting plant? I can’t quite make it out.

    I think it is chain sword.

    Not really sure.

    It took off when I first planted it so I divided it and put it in a couple of other tanks.

    Then went back to my “” receipt and figured out that’s what it is.

    2 of the tanks I put it in were dirty tanks. It seems to leech out the nutrients pretty quickly. It’s kinda brown in the original tank.
