I would suggest against tossing in a few RCS in there. Ghosties are territorial and will attack them. I would also keep an eye on your ghosties in case one or two turn out to be macrobrachium shrimp which will nip at Zippy's fins

Macrobrachium shrimp are often mistaken for ghosties at the LFS when they're young. They can grow up to 4 inches!
Hey, thank you. Really? I didn't know that. I think Zippy hs been eating the ghost shirmp slowly. I started out with 5 and now I think there are 2 left.

tylergvolk What about the other plant?

Seattle_Aquarist Hi tylergvolk,

Aponogeton species; most likely based upon the leaf shape and flower spike Aponogeton ulvaceous.

Picture Update [1.6.13]

I need help identifying the plants reveaeled in the photos below.

I have already identified the following plants:

Flame Moss
Frogbit
Dwarf Sag
Annibus

The plants I need help identifying are in the back left hand side of the tank. The second picture below is a close up of these plants.

They came in a bulb/seed pack I bought from Petco. One of the plant looks like a sword with long narrow leaves. The other is more a stem type growing long stems across the top of the aquarium and one has flowered.

tylergvolk The white haze has started to reseed a bit, but the plants are starting to turn brown and melt away.

I wonder if this is due to lack of light or just the fact that they are going through a transitional period...

tylergvolk There is a white haze starting to form in this aquarium. It's covering the aquarium walls and some of the plants.

I want to say it's from the mystery snail slim but I'm not sure.

What should I do?

Elppan My ghost shrimp I had with my betta steals his food, it's hilarious. I eventually moved my ghost shrimp to another tank, but man did he like to mess with my betta. Eventually Lord Baelish would steal the food back, it was a chase around the tank to see who would finish eating the food first!

Yeah thanks I do too! I set the sag leaves in the annibus and over the driftwood on purpose. It kinda took awhile because its hard to work in those nanos.
