well it's in a 75gallon with fancy goldfish. I have them in pots.. 60 watts of T8 bulbs. No CO2, small substrate and laterite in the pots. I'm redoing the tank in the summer for plants more so... There'll be no pots in the tank then. Here is a pic of the plants like a month ago, they've grown since..

These are some that were in my 56g tank... that tank was 24" tall and they were still growing Beautiful plants but plan on them getting large quickly... these in this photo I think are probably only 4 months old or so... they like a well fed substrate

I once had a flower from one of the Walmart bulbs, and it wasn't a real waterlily. It had a very tiny, inconspicuous flower, turned out to be an Aponogeton. Just read the packet and see what it says on the back, some are Nymphaeas, and some are Aponogeton, I think we all want the Nymphaeas more.

I have bought those bulbs too; from petsmart. If you want the lotuses more, look for the packs with the bigger bulbs in them. The biggest ones are the lotuses. Out of the two lotus bulbs I got in mine, only one did really well. The other sprouted but never really flourished. The water they were in was hard and at around 80-81 temp wise. Here's a pick of the lotus, it's in the front of the driftwood, (oh, and it was only under 1.6 watts/g!):

Wow, glad I saw this. The brand sold at Walmart are not our bulb packs. Saying that we do sell the company that makes that product a small amount of bulbs each month. They are located only a few miles away and like to purchase locally where they can inspect the bulbs before purchase. What happens to our best estimate is that when a product gets into the Walmart supply system it may or may not see the light of day for months at a time. Same way with the large chains that we supply directly. You can only really get fresh bulbs that come with a guarantee to grow direct from us. We package them daily. Both AquariumPlants.com and Custom Sea Life try to include as many different species as is possible but sometimes due to import restrictions the selection of species is limited.
