Oddly, I totally saw water lettuce at a koi pond place yesterday. The roots were so nasty looking I didn't want to put it in my tank though.

Beautiful tank! If you need floaters, I have salvinia and dwarf water lettuce if you want some Also some hygroryza aristata, I think its common name is asian water grass. Looks really funky haha

you can always trim roots of floating plants if they grow too long or messy, and they will grow back in a neat fashion. plus they supply a lot of area for shrimp to browse through...think about that the next time you look at water lettuce. I really like it. i use it in my shrimp bowl and wherever else i can.

pandamonium is sending me some salvinia and dwarf water lettuce (my RAOK of FSS to him was like boomerang!). I really love the community on this forum!!!

The tank is FINALLY showing the lowest level of Nitrite and Nitrate. Yea!!! Considering I started with cycled media from another tank, I really thought it would cycle faster.

The frogbit is recovering. I think it just had to start over with all new growth. So currently it's just a lot of small, new leaves. But it's definitely growing.

The micro chain sword Speedie408 gave me is also taking off like a weed and spreading all over the tank.

So things are progressing...

I've got the new floaters in the tank. They look amazing. We'll see which ones thrive. I also put some of each type into my CBS tank to see if something can out grow the d@mn duck weed!

did you grow lots of algae before you added the floaters?

I LOVE the light the FugeRay puts out. It's even and really clean if you know what I mean.

The tank has had a mild case of brown diatoms as it's been cycling, but that's pretty normal in my experience. And of course the wood has a bit of white fuzz, but again, totally normal. Otherwise, no crazy algae breakout. *knock on wood*
