Yep. There's a point where you can't add without messing up what's there

Yeah...except for this isn't adding, its putting back... I'll take care of it later, ill just let it float for now. It seems this particular location doesn't like to keep plants..maybe I'll have to just replace it with DHG.


I setup a new emersed setup in an old 10 gallon. Here is the list of what i have in it:

Lymnophyla aromatica
HC
HM
UG
Lebelia cardinalis Sp. Dwarf (Picked it up when I saw it at That Fish Place)
Ludwigia paulustris 'Red'
Rotala Sp. Bangladesh
Rotala rotundifolia 'Colorata'
Roatala Sp. Magenta
Rotala macrandra
Alteranthera reineckii

Growing elsewhere I have:

Eleocharis belem
Bacopa monnieri
Bacopa lanigera
Anubias barteri 'Micro'
Persicaria 'Sao Paolo'
Nymphaea Spp. (Dwarf red lily)
Glossostigma elatinoides
Fissidens fontanus

WNY'er? Haha, I'm not altogether sure what that stands for.. Westnern New Yorker? I am a central PA'er. I live an hour away from Lancaster, but I have volleyball practice twice a week in Lancaster, so I stopped by before practice on day.

Oh hmm. Perhaps there is another shop with that name down there.

I recently went to That Fish Place in Buffalo, and I loved it.

I go to St. Bonaventure university, so I'm like 10 minutes from PA.

Hmm thats odd. I've never heard of it. This one is in a big warehouse, has an awesome array of livestock and lots of equipment. I always ask them to match their online price though, because their website is invariably cheaper than their retail store.

How are you enjoying the snow? I'm snowed in at my grandmas 2 hours north of Albany. We're heading back to Virginia tomorrow (originally today) then back to school at Alfred University in WNY (in mid Jan).

So I had some Myriophyllum mattogrossense floating in this tank, just to give the betta a little more cover. Well last night at like 1:30am I was topping off the tank and I decided to get creative. So I too the top two inches of a few Myrio stems and planted them sort of behind the main stone. They look really cool! My plan is to keep them trimmed pretty low. I would've used another plant, maybe Rotala rotundifolia 'Colorata' but I don't have any.. Someone sent me some stem plants to grow emersed, but a lot of them died, I think the cold from shipping and then transferring to emersed just got to be too stressful for them. So I have tow ait until it warms up to switch anything.

I gotta say, this is a very pleasant tank to look at. I love the colors of the betta as well. I've got the same tank except mine has orange pumpkin shrimp in it
