I had the tank about 2" from being full and it proved to much for the piece on the far left and it floated up. So I drained the tank so that I can fix it. I had screwed a hdpe cutting board to the bottom of the driftwood in hopes that the sand would hold it down so I am going to put a couple of big heavy flat rocks on it this time and cover them in sand so they dont show this should fix the problem.
You'd be surprised at how persistent the little buggers can be lol. I have 3 smallish amazons, that don't seem to be transitioning so well, so I may have to bite the bullet and spend 50 bucks on this huge mother plant because my geo fry aren't growing fast enough for a trade lol. My hope was to get a nice healthy root system quick, but it may not be in the cards for these plants.
