  1. Plants
    i everyone, A month or so ago I bought this plant for my shrimp tank, at the time thinking it was hornwort. It goes grow fast and my RCS love it, but as I look at other pictures of hornwort and read about how it behaves, I’m starting to question if it might be a different plant. The...

    Hi All, Can someone suggest me some fast growing stem plants. I recently planted Rotala Indica. I found that Hornwort is also fast growing, but from what I read they might be very hard to prune/clean. After almost 1 and half years, suddenly my tank (which is heavily planted) is battered with...

    Looking for some disease and snail free Vallisneria, Hornwort and Marsilea Minuta. Is there anyone on the East Cost not too far from NC whom I could get a small batch from? Thanks Closed.

    Hi everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read my post :) We have a pond that is just under 2 acres in size. 75% of the pond is covered in Hornwort. The pond has never had algae and the fish within the pond seem to be quite healthy. What I'm contemplating is reselling some of the Hornwort...

    Is too many plants a bad thing? My 50 gallon tank is full of mostly hornwort and elodea. I'm wondering if there's such a thing as "too much". I'm worried it'll cause a CO2 swing, a pH swing, or some other swing that I'm not anticipating. Or is more of these plants a good thing? I can imagine...

    I am searching for a plant which I only know by picture and a vague name. It is (I believe) a fully terrestrial plant. It is a hornwort and I have determined it is possibly Anthocerotaceae Anthoceros. I am not too positive on the naming from my search so far. Basically it looks like this...

    Hey everyone, my 55 gallon tank has been neglected for a few weeks and has a massive amount of duckweed and hornwort that would like new homes (otherwise they will be composted). Up for grabs: 2 portions of duckweed that should each cover half a 55 gallon tank surface, if you want it all that...

    Hi. I'ts been a while since I've introduced any live plants to my aquarium. Fact is with college/work I had no time to take good care of my goldfish tank and went along with plastic decor for a long time. Now I wanna make the jump again to a planted aquarium. Now to the main point of the...

The main focus of this RAOK is going to be Dwarf Water Lettuce (sandwich bag full) and snails (Ramshorn and/or Malaysian Trumpet - small/babyish sized). I know it's not...

    I am a newbie, and have discovered I love Hornwort when I put a sinker on the bottom of a bunch of it. It looks pretty good, and its cheap for my low tech tank. I have the LED lights that came with my 20 gallon high, so I can only have low light plants. I also have Vallisneria Spiralis, Java...

    I have just added a good bunch of hornwort in my 60 gallon tank, just having them float. It is the first plant in this tank so my question is what are the requirements to keep this plant alive? I have Coralife Lunar Aqualight T5HO for lighting and keep them on for 6 hours.

    Tonight I am pulling out all of my hornwort from my tank and offering it up to RAOK. I estimate it to be about 20ish stems at 6"-18" long. It was a great plant to have at the start but since I swapped over to pressurized and EI dosing it grows too fast to keep. It grows about 2" or more a day in...

    I started a new planted 30g tank October 23, 2010. I added 1 Hornwort appx. 2 weeks ago & then 10 Dwarf Sag appx. 1 week ago. Problem is, I dion't see any growth at all. The HW is green & bushy, no brown or dead looking pieces on it. Just doesn't look like it's done much since I planted it. The...
