Your aromatica looks like the green variety. I actually statred a tread a while back over at APC about what seemed to be two different types of it I had in my tank. One got nice coloration but the other would only lighten its green in the exacts same conditions/tank. LMK if you want me to PM you a link to the thread.

Sharkfood That's probably the nicest Madagascar lace I have ever seen. Usually when I see it it's in a state of deterioration.

bsmith Sorry for the plug but if anyone likes the Polygonum that I piosted pics of I actually have about 10 full nice stems for sale for $15 shipped if you PM me that you say it in this thread.

This Powerseller deal makes it really hard to sell stems and stuff because I feel that most people don't just browse that section because they may have a while ago and perhaps feel that it just the same old same old in there. Sorry but someone needs these nice plants!

Wow I just bought some of these from petsmart. LOL! they sell it in an airtight package with agar gel to keep the plants from dehydrating + nutrition. o_O I planted them outside in my outside tank... I hope they'll do fine o_O

Studman0143 I love my Scarlet Red Temple. The underside of the leaves have a gorgeous color and they are fun to watch at night because the leaves stand straight up like they are reaching towards the light!
