burr740 Greens in the back look like very small Pogosteman erectus.

Think Ben is right about the other one, but I couldnt hazard a guess which

Thanks! It looks like it is Ammannia senegalensis if I had to guess from your suggestions.

Bump: Glad to see you still here!

Dempsey I also lowered my temp from 80 to 75. I have always kept my tanks around 78-80 but have been reading that with 75, some plants do better so I will see it that works.

Dempsey Update. Not much to update really. Things are growing good. Dosing half EI for the time being. 4 T5HO's on about 10" above the top of the tank.

Okay, thanks. The new growth seems to be doing well so far. I had to read back on my journal to see were I had everything set and what i had the photo period set to. I have it at 7hrs now but think I will go back to 9hrs...

They wont hurt healthy, algae free Wallichii. But let it get some algae and they'll pull the leaves off trying to eat it. At least that's been my experience.

Looking forward to watching the tank fill in.

Dempsey Another update.

I will also take pics of the plants that I need ID'd.

Everything is growing fast, along with algae! I should be able to get that under control soon...

If anyone could ID some of those plants, that would be great! The crypts need an ID for sure.
If you could post individual photos of each plant you want ID'd that would be great! Always great to see people get back into the hobby, eventhough I'm relatively new myself. Good luck on the new beginning!

Good to see you back. I completely understand how life can get in the way of your hobbies but sometimes a fresh new start is what you need. I went through the same thing as I changed careers a couple of years ago and it was hard to find time to devote to my tank. Looking forward to see your new tank.
