Bear in mind, many of the plants sold for aquarium use are grown emersed.. that is, in air with wet root systems. So a terrarium set up would very likely work for many of them. You may have to adjust...

Could be Lysimachia, but the leaves on the Lysimachia I had last summer had a bit of a, for lack of a better word, I'd say 'wrap' around the stems, just where they join to it. So the base of each...

What about water mint ? it's a marginal plant, edible, very strong mint scent, similar to true peppermint, but it's a natural marginal species that would suit.

Yep, they really are amazing.. I can't believe how far they manage to get from the tank before the lack of water finally catches up with them. If you're sure it's a male.. he will probably try again....

I find mine stay planted once they have enough of a root system. Might take a bit of time for that to develop if they're short on roots. I sometimes put a mid size rock, pushed right into them to...

Fwiw, I find that marble chips do a better job of growing algae than most other rocks do. I think it's partly the colour and partly the texture. Smooth rock, I find, grows little to no algae,...

The grassy looking ones, may be valisneria of some kind, or possibly one of the narrow leaf sword plants.. it's bit hard for me to see details. The broader leaved ones, I think, are also some kind of...

Hopefully they will. I had some once and I didn't do anything particular. I did stop feeding my fish though and after awhile no more hydra. I must assume they were eaten, as they simply vanished over...

I'm more of a live and let live type. If a fish is seriously ill and I have reason to think it is suffering and won't get better, I will euthanize it.

Otherwise, I'm inclined to let things be....

You can also use a small water bottle to create a baffle. Take of the top and bottom, cut a slit in the long side and fit it over the weir. Being open at both ends, little chance of fish becoming...
