This plant looks familiar and non aquatic, but I can't recall its name. Have you considered this plant might not be an aquatic plant? You'll learn that not all plants sold as aquatic are aquatic. Next time you go shopping for plants carry an aquatic plant ID book with you.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.
