    Hey - I got about six plants the other day for 4$ at this awesome amd local pet store, they said it was really good for tetras, which I have. So I was wondering what kind of plant this, so I could learn more about it and it's proper care. So here's a pic:

    That is anacharis. Anacharis isn't too hard, they prefer colder water, and are known to "melt" randomly. They like to send out new stems along the main stem with a root attached to reproduce. These can be cut off (try to cut before the root) and replanted. Some fish will eat the leaves, i assume tetras will, so the plant may not survive for long, especially if you don't have a good plant light.
