Just updated last week.

The tank is trudging along well. No recent changes.

As I mentioned here, just a note on the misconception that floaters can't handle any movement.

Here's a picture of the frogbit resting in tons of surface agitation of this tank:



Mother plants are placed behind the spray bar and they send out baby plants that remain attached. Those younger plants grow really well in the current created by the spray bar and as long as they stay attached/anchored to the mother plant, they're fine.

I've also got floaters in high movement tanks. They don't do as well for me as they do in still water, but they aren't doing bad, either.

For curiosity's sake, how do you manage the floaters when you're doing water changes? I've only ever had duckweed in my 8g but I'm upgrading to a 20g and wanted to try frogbit or RRF since I've got more room now, but I'm worried that I'll just end up hurting them with weekly water changes and that the roots will suffer because of it.

Water changes aren't going to hurt floating plants. Their roots aren't super-delicate.

There's nothing special you have to do when swapping water. I drain out about 15%, add the same amount of remineralized water back.

Don't over-think it or make tank goodies more complicated than they need to be.

A berried mama just past the juvie stage, about half the size of a fully grown adult:



A mixture of juvies:



Finally have shell thickness where I want it on these CBS and they're breeding really well:

Had to add some Amanos today:




The first one is super-blue but appears cloudy in the image (it's not).

Where did you manage to buy the Flowerhead SSS? Or did they all come from breeding SSS for you?
