HAHAHAHA!!!!! Have you ever gone to AllLookSame.com? I scored a pitiful 4 (out of 18, I think). And *I'm* Japanese-American!

No, I don't think russila is the same as araguaia. Nobody has ever heard of russila... I hope I can keep it alive and get it to grow so I can eventually post photos of it.

I may have gone to...

Ebichua,

I was at "the other" Bay Area aquarium shop and also found a Rotala that I had never heard of. I can't even find much useful information via Google. The only site that refers to this...

Living in New Zealand must be like being in heaven... It's one place that I *must* visit in my lifetime.

I'm hoping that I can soon hatch eggs from my own chickens, too. I have two pairs of black...

Yeah, it blows, but fortunately, I don't seem to have problems with feathers. My chickens are really wonderful. Two of the girls love to hop up onto my lap and get scritches and snuggles. I won't lie...

Aw, they're just precious!!! I confess, I'm really NOT a cat person, but I have a real soft spot for orange and white tabbies. I wish I didn't have such bad allergies to furry critters... I'd love to...

My guess is Echinodorus quadricostatus. But don't weigh my opinion too heavily. I'm zero for one on ID-ing right now :P .

I can only guess at the size comparing it to the Amano pearlgrass behind...

I agree now, too. Looking REALLY close, I can see that the veining in the leaves is quite different from E. diversifolia. It'll be hard to tell for sure until you get vigorous growth.

Sorry, don't shoot the messenger... I just looked up "Peacock fern" and it seems it's NOT an aquatic, either. You know, I looked at those packaged plants at either PetsMart or Petco, and the ONLY one...

I had great success using a 12" All-Glass fluorescent strip light that's made just for this tank. But I also try to stick with the easy, medium-speed plants that don't require blasting with strong...

Those in the front are not true aquatics. They might survive and look okay for several weeks to even months, but they'll eventually die. I know somebody else who bought a ribbon plant from PetsMart,...
