I hear you brother, no one wanted to help me either with a plant question, and sorry I have no experience with your plant.

Good luck!

Is there a specific question you have or are you just wanting to show others your tank? I watched part of your video but saw no "narrated labels." Not sure what others prefer, but a video may not be the best way to show off a tank. IMO pictures are better as I can focus on it. At the least a steady video (use of tripod, etc...) showing the full tank, and parts for a period of time with no camera movement would be nice.

If you have a specific question let us know. There are incredibly great people on this forum who are more than happy to help/critique/whatever...

Your tank will look like a jungle when those plants in the background grow. Focus on lesser plant and continue trimming until you get a nice big bush.

sorry there may have been a problem with the sound ill fix it and post some pics of the plant i need help with it is a limnophilia aromarica "hippuroides" the problem was it didnt ship very well almost all the leaves melted off and the stems were vroken into peices ( 3-4 stems turned into about 10 peices) is there any chance of it bouncing back or should i just pull them out and toss them? here are some pics of it





in the video the bad plant is at 3:22-4:10

and the video i just checked to make sure i posted the link to the one with sound and the sound is good sorry if its a little shaky i was using my camera phone. also i didnt mean to come off as a whiney a$$ sorry about that
