Well, I have new photos on photobucket which I should post soon. The Betta Bowl at the Office is getting that Jungle look. Dwarf Sagittaria is growing with its very tips OUT of the water (just the tips). This goldfish bowl has 2 1/2 inches of Seachem Fluorite for the substrate and I thought I could see a root growing almost to the bottom. Well, eventually I could not resist. I had to check out the very bottom. I was just dying of curiousity. BUT, I was just imagining another disaster at the office and was trying to resist looking. Well, lo and behold, there are some VERY healthy roots ALL THE WAY at the bottom. Nice and healthy green and white and the roots are actually pretty stocky. I am trying to figure out whether that would be the Anubias or the Dwarf Sag. I don't think roots of Dwarf Sag grow that stocky, probably remain hairlike even when they get thick (spread out) in the substrate.
I am thinking of trimming this Betta Bowl and taking some of the Dwarf Sag home, although I may need another (new) tank to put it into.
At this point I don't mind giving away Rotala, but am not ready yet to start giving away Dwarf Sag.
I am thinking of using that as my main plant in my eventual FIRST El Naturale planted aquarium.
Does anyone have Dwarf Sag as their 'carpet' grass in a 10 Gallon?
It leaves the top half of the tank for the fish to swim in, yes?
