Loving that lotus! I just planted a red tiger lotus, I can't wait till it sprouts and I can move it to the big tank!

Thanks! Yeah, it's a great red plant for low tech tanks, very easy to keep.

That's what I've read online too, so good to hear, because I'm struggling just to get dwarf sag to grow..

My 20 long. Most of the inhabitants didn't want to pose for the photo.
Had a snail outbreak a few weeks ago. Decided to let a few assassin snails work on the problem. So far it seems to be working. Hoping we'll reach equilibrium at some point and the I can perhaps add another fish to two.

Currently 1 albino and 2 zebra cory cats, 2 guppies , 3 Mickey Mouse Platys, and 5 cherry shrimp (supposedly, I never see more than 2 at a time).

Would like a different color fish or two - currently it's all yellows and orange. Ideas?

Hi tessa. How often do you change your water?
Root tabs?

I change water once a week, about 35%. And yes, I occasionally add root tabs - have tried a few different ones but haven't found anything I prefer yet.
