I believe you are talking about Hydrocotyle verticillata?

I think you're looking at Ranunculus papulentus (the little palm-tree looking plant). It creeps in a manner very similar to Hydrocotyle verticellata.

Here's some of mine, I hope.












The one that's fully grown in is my 55 and the one with all the open space is my new 75.

Still seriously UNDER CONSTRUCTION



Should be getting an order of plants in from AquaSpot World soon to rework the left side and foreground a bit. The glosso had to go (something I never thought I would say).

Nice Dap.........ya I'm still reconstructing too.
I like your M. Lace......lots of leaves.......or is that multiple bulbs?

My M. Lace was a bulb with no leaves a bit less then a month ago when I got it. They grow pretty quick huh.

Everyone's tanks look great!

Ya, that is one m. lace bulb, the same one I have had for a while now. It is getting bigger than I anticipated.

The foreground in the middle is 4-leaf clover growing very compact. After the glosso grew over itself the 4th or 5th time it started to get difficult to maintain and it grows so fast it is hard to control where it is in the tank. Clover is much more well behaved and does not grow nearly as fast.

Yep I took up my glosso for exactly the same reason. But now I'm getting alittle impatient with the HC I replaced it with as it is filling it a hole lot slower then I had anticipated.
