Thumbs up

That's what I was hoping!

The guy at the store thought it was some sort of val, but he isn't the "plant" guy. He wants me to call back on Tuesday, but I'm afraid it will be gone.

It's one of those more "Challenging" plants, but completely doable, theres a good chance it will still be there, if its not PM me, i can give you a source for some or get a plant or two for you

Thanks! I managed to snag it from the LFS. So far it's happy and healthy in my tank. I think I even detect some growth.

ADJAquariums: I appreciate the offer to assist
