Happy to send em to you . I'm shocked they survived the heat, luckily they got there fast. The Water Sprite looks a bit wilted, but I'm sure it'll perk up. Maybe an excuse to tell the wife you need to run out and buy some upgraded lighting? . I'll send more your way in a bit. All three of those plants (Vals, Rotala Rotofundia and Water Sprite) grow like weeds in my tank.

Being responsible...fishless cycling defines it, fish-in requires it. Choose wisely.

Actually, I think you're floating the wrong thing, lol. It looks like the Rotala you've got floating. I'd stick it down in the gravel at the back of your tank.

Very cool, I'm slowly converting my fakes to real plants as well.

It looks as if there is a non-aquatic plant in there. What is that variegated plant towards the middle, to the right of the driftwood?

Not to answer for him...but I think the only real plants he has are the ones I sent. When I saw the thing in the middle I wondered too...must be a lively looking fake, lol.

Fake silk buddy. The only real ones are to the left.

ahh ok, thanks Eric/Wayne. It is a very real looking (albeit terrestrial) plant.
