I could be wrong...

I could be wrong here, but the Green one looks like a house plant! I have 1 looks just like it called a Peace Lilly. The more I look, I am 99% sure that's what it is. Did your friend have any sucess with it?

Fish stores are famous for selling terrestrial plants as submerged, they don't do well for long.

Dunnow about the other one, but it doesn't look too happy just yet.

I need a good AQ plant ref. book myself.

I know absolutly nothing about plants so you could be correct. Either way the old home for these plants was poorly lit expecially if you take out the ambient light from the room. The plants where in a stock 55 gal with a stock 55 gal canopy with two small sinble bulb fixtures. Probably 30W total.

Now they are in a 29 with 40W of light. I know another 20W would be better but that might come in a few weeks after I see how the plants are doing.

The one plant on the right has a big bulb on the bottom.
