Here's the picture of the Dwarf Water Lettuce I was talking about



See the long roots?
There's also some salvinia minima mixed in there too

If that rock is a calcium base rock you will never be able to lower your ph. Id switch it out.

Anyone ever have a custom stand made in the Philly area? I'm looking to replace the stock Osaka 320 stand with something ADA-style but made from fine wood.

golden nugget definitely needs driftwood. And be very careful when changing water that has lower PH. Fish handle increases better than decreases. I have fish stuff too and have ton of plant clippings. Let me know if you're around Philly and I'll gladly help you out!
