the water wisteria or sprite has hit the surface & is growing along the surface & the rotala indica is certainly overgrown & needs to be trimmed but I will give it another week without trimming to see if I like it growing all over the surface. I'm sure the fish appreciate it though. In the rear I have a small anibus that just sprouted a new leaf & a pot along with a rock cave with java moss over it I'm hoping will fill in.

come to think of it I forgot which is which. Is the left plant the water sprite or is the middle plant the water sprite? I notice the middle plants leaves are very fragile almost paperlike

its easy to tell the difference. wisteria is the plant that has stems - looks like a general stem plant. water sprite however is a fern, so its going to have giant leaves. also its leaves uncurl as they grow more, so look for the plant that has curled young leaves and thats your sprite.
