Thanks. The flora and fauna pics are a collection from all three of my tanks (125, 40 and 20).
As for filtration, the 125 has an Eheim 2028 and a Fluval 304 running at opposite ends. The intakes and outputs are crossed so that the Eheim draws water from the right side and outputs on the left, while the Fluval is set opposite. No additional powerheads or pumps.
That's strange I just bought some 3 days ago here in central illinois. From a store, not a hobbyist. Won't say the name just in case it might get them in trouble. Are you sure its in all 50 states? I thought it was just Florida that it was banned.
I bought some yesterday too. The guy told me that it was banned in Florida, and since there was one main plant distributor in the US for aquatic plants and it's located in Florida, that it's hard to come by. He could be full of it though.

This variety of the species is patented as "tropic sunset". It is simply a hybrid and the leaves are pinkish red to green in color. Absolutely beautiful! (Check your state's noxious weed list before ordering this plant.)
I ordered some from them a year ago... kinda doubt if they really check... but who knows they just might.
I have some red hygro that I just bought. I over bleached it and it is currently just stems. It had beautiful DARK red leaves and green leaves. Maybe in a month or 2 ill have some to sell or trade out.
I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......
I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.
No, there are no loopholes for this plant. You have to be licensed by the US Dept. of Ag to grow or distribute this plant. There are very few of us left who can legally ship this plant and when our permits expires then it's totally gone from the legal commercial channels. On top of that there are a lot of states that have gone beyond the federal regs to ban it from their state and we are very careful not to ship it to the wrong state since fine can be and are ridiculous.
