I just want to see some UG I haven't already seen 20 times on google images even though several are amazing. I don't care if its patches or a full carpet but I just want to see something new. MedRed, please share the next time you take pics

I'm getting it from another member on this forum. You can put up a WTB on the swap n' shop and see if anyone has any.
There is also carnivorousplantnursery.com who have pretty good service from what I've heard.

I had this in a 20g with 2x65W and press CO2. This was a pic in late May before I took the tank down at the end of the school year. I will re-establish the tank and UG in the next week or so.

Was that the last pic before you took it down because that UG looked like it was forming a great carpet!!! When you get that tank set-up again, be sure to post progress pics as the UG grows!

Well, the UG that I recently got seemed to be doing well and then my tetras and SAE decided to have a snack. It is still alive but all of the tips are chewed and the chunk floated to the surface. I clipped off the plant portion of a fake foreground plant I had in a closet and it turned into a crossed plant weight -that floats-. So I went outside and gathered 4 small rocks to weight down each end. I figure that because UG grows so thick that it will cover the rocks and "weight". At least if the fish would bite it that the roots will first have a chance to establish themselves. What do you guys think of this? I'll post pics in a little to show more specifically what I mean.

that stinks... i guess my sae's have enough stuff to nibble on that they don't care about the UG. i'm going to need to get some more UG. I may end up redoing the 5.5 mini-m with ug...

I removed the SAE and there s hardly anything left of the UG but hopefully there is enough to let grow back. Even though I really doubt it
