    Toxic plants

    I know this isn't the point of the topic, but aren't Ceratophyllum spider plants and therefore not aquatic plants or is there a type that is aquatic?

    Yes, another riccia question...

    Hi, a short while ago I got some riccia from hellohefalump (t hanks again!) and I kept it floating to grow for a while. In the meantime I had 'flu so the tank got put on the back burner for a while. Needless to say,the riccia is a substantial mass now and more than I can use at present. Is there...

    Limnobium Laevigatum (Amazon Frogbit)

    I have them too and the dead leaves are a pain to remove as they get hidden easily! I find that my pencilfish love hiding under them. I did have them in another tank but the surface agitation used to send them zooming around the tank which got a bit annoying after a while!

    Moss troubles...

    Thanks, I had a lookat the weeping moss in the 60l (no co2 yet) tank and it has just started to root. The Java moss in the other tank hasn't so I retied it, just impatient I guess :roll: :wink:

    Moss troubles...

    Hi, I am having trouble with getting my mosses (weeping & java) to root. I seem to recall reading somewhere on here (or did I dream it? :lol: ) that mosses aren't all that keen on very hard water. It is tied to lava rock so it shouldn't be to difficult but after 2 months it's still constantly...

    A Question

    My big tank is less than 1 wpg and no CO2 at the mo and I have Ambulia (Limnophila sessiflora) growing well. In my other tank (abt 1.5 wpg and no CO2 either 'til I set it up!) I have Bacopa australis which is sending out new growth from the base and is reddening where it reaches the surface. I...

    vallis problems HELP

    Looks like it's being eaten to me! If it was rotting etc, the edges wouldn't still be green. I am having a similar problem - something is eating my vallis about one third up leaving the top two thirds floating on the surface. I bought 3 apple snails frommy local MA, not knowing at the time that...

    Angels eating my Frogbit!!

    I am trying not to overfeed them, but I do feed them 3 times a day. They are only eating the roots, but there is more than enough green food for them to eat that goes in for the snails/ottos etc. I've removed the frogbit and put it in the other tank where it's safe, but I'll try something...

    willow / twisted willow branch

    Willows will form aquatic roots and trees grown near lakes/ponds will drink alot of water and have a root system beyond the size of the tree canopy (hence advising against planting near houses as they can demolish your foundations!). I don't know about what it would do to the tank, but all I...

    Angels eating my Frogbit!!

    Hi, I have Amazon Frogbit in both my tanks. It's doing great in the smaller tank, but in the bigger tank, my angels will not leave it alone - they've eaten nearly all the roots and have started on the leaves now :evil: . It's taken me a while to find the culprits, but I caught them red-finned...

    How long to leave plants before introducing apple snails?

    Hmmm, one say Yeay and one say Nay! Should I have let the plants establish more before introducing them or will that have made no difference? I put a slice of cucumber in there yesterday and they've not left it alone! Hopefully they'll eat that instead of the plants now!

    How long to leave plants before introducing apple snails?

    Hi,I wasn't sure where to post this so hope this is OK! My tank is now cycled and yesterday I added 3 otos and 3 apple snails (all doing very nicely :D ). However... I was under the impression that apple snails only ate dead or dying vegetation but my apple snails (from MA) are voraciously...
