Default Amania Senegalensis

I have seen it in books, but does anyone have it or know how to take care of it if I do find it. I have had great luck with Amania Glacilis.

I have had some trouble trying to tell some of the ammannia species apart. I have what I think is senegalensis (but it looks like gracilis in some online photos) and found it to be fairly undemanding. I have grown it under 2 and 3wpg with pressurized CO2.

I think that A. gracilis looks a heck of a lot like A. senegalensis when the plant is not getting the required CO2 and fertilizers.

Mike, are you saying that A. senegalensis looks like cr@p? Most of the senegalensis pics I find on the net do look like cr@p with leaves severely rolling downwards. But I don't believe it is how healthy senegalensis should look. The only way I can get it looking attractive is in soft water tank. I am sure Tom Barr can get it look decent in harder water as well, but not me

I have that book by Pablo somone, I think its a really good book for plant ID, and Senegalis looks nothing like Gracillis in the book.

Do you guys know if Pond Penny is what is found in many pics. in T. Amono's first book or is it Bacopa Carolina?
Why do you think in his later 2 books he just focuses on grassy looking plants and a couple larger as accents, when in his first book published by TFH his tanks looked more natural, almost jungle like?
I think his first book was the best and the other 2 are more for layout ideas.
