I bought this plant at Petco; infamous for peddling non-aquatic plants along with their other un-labeled aquatic plants. I have been suspecious from day one, but the plant has good looks, so I picked up 2 pots or 6 plants. They have lived in my 10 gal tank for about 3 months.
They are about 8 inches tall and has
grown from about 5-6 inches tall. The root structure has not really taken off and is quite shallow, despite being left alone for over a month. Occasionally some of the outer leaves turn yellow and disintegrate. All my other plants are doing very well.
Am I fighting a losing battle?
According to my handy-dandy Tropica Guide/Catalog, I suspect that this plant is either a Ophiopogon japonicus or some sort of Sagittaria.
(Suspect plant is the tall grass-like plant center right)
