I can't quite tell from the pictures, but that hygro could be Hygrophila balsamica.

Google it and see if it matches, Its quite poisonous when grown emersed and there have been cases of when submerging, it killing some sensitive fish in the aquarium. (Though I have never had that happen when I grew it)

Your right. What made me doubt it was the color. I wasn't sure if that was the cameras white balence, or the plant. Balsamica definitely has more needle-like leaves. I'm used to seeing it in its emersed form, which looks similar to submersed Proserpinaca palustris.

I have submersed and emersed growth on the same stems. But thanks for the heads up, once it drops it's emersed leaves the whole stem should be like this. I'm also only running 1-t5ho as well so transition may be slow

That's an attempt I made. Lol we started with a 10. Got to a 29. N she freaked out when I brought a 55 home so I downgraded for a bit n had a bunch of 5 gallons n she seems ok for now... But she has considered my 12 long. I'm still attempting to eventually gon40b!

It's a gradual thing. I just have a super supportive girl. She says when I get an idea I. My head that I'm just the kind of person that will get it done some how some way. So she hopped on board and loves the passion I exhibit for the fish and plants.

Nice. I'm a huge fan of heavy with fantastic production. I thought As Daylight Dies was excellent. This hobby you might say is "My Curse". Check out Meshuggah if you haven't already. Amazing.

understood. A $90 show ticket goes a long way for tank goodies!

I'm a cl wheeler and dealer. Usually score tickets day of the show for a fraction of the cost. But it adds it either way.
