No, but our well water has a lot of iron in it already, and I use a little bit of excel daily, its supposed to help iron be more usable.

That looks like Cabomba to me. I could be wrong though but my Cabomba does that when it gets near the surface. I'll try to take some pics.

Sessiflora?
Looks good mate. I also like the Najas Guadalupensis growing next to it, a very handsome plant IMHO

It's definitely a Limnophila species.

Nice plant. Too bad it's illegal here in California.

Best way for me to tell it from cabomba is
1. stem color - cabomba has a darker stem
2. leaf structure - see pictures

Here is cabomba:


and here's Limnophila Sessiliflora:

Great pic, Ernie! Anyone know how to tell the difference between Limnophila sessiliflora and Limnophila aquatica?

According to the folks I bought these plants from, in this picture:



The taller plant in the back is aquatica, and the shorter one in the midground is sessiliflora, but they really look very similar to me.
