Drop in a spawning mop, and check it every couple days. I'm sure you'll find eggs.

It does look like my jungle vals, but gets no way near the same size. It seems to max out at about 5"-6".

Is there such a thing as a red val?

Help with plant id

Anyone know what this is? The top part of the leaves are a reddish brown. The leaves seem perfectly healthy, and not dying.

Looks like a Val or Sag.

I use those in almost all my tanks. In my 10g's, I use both the I's and II's, but you probably have to cut the uplift tube for the II.

IMO, the III is a little overkill.

That's what i initially thought it was, but didn't think they grew that tall. The longer stems are about a foot long.

Has anyone grown them this long before?

I've never used paint, but i have rubbed silicone on the pvc and covered it with the same sand used in the aquarium.

You can still tell its a tube, but it blends in a little better.

The Boesemani should be fine when they're small, but as they approach their adult size of 5" they will probably out compete the others at feeding. Especially the slower gourami's and guppy's.
