Very new to planted tanks—this was set up a few days ago, and the tank is still cycling. The Rotala Narrow Leaf Sp. Red doesn't look healthy to me. Are there any changes I should make that you guys can tell from the photo? I can send my water parameters tomorrow as I added Seachem Prime...
My rotala is growing horizontally and diagonally. What's more strange is that it's growing against the flow.
I originally planted it on point 1 then it sent a branch on the back that crept horizontally to point 2. It has taken root there, grew some normal (vertical) branches and then continued...
I've decided to build a biotope and I've pinned down the 3 plant species that are going to be in the tank.
The tank is going to be dirted, I am mineralising the soil right now so I have 1-2 weeks before planting! To the natural soil I will be adding jbl florapol for clay/iron...
Hey all! I've had this tank for about 4 months now but never got a chance to post is on APC. It's less of a scape and more of a trial and error tank to learn how to plant, grow, and prune the plants, so the plant species are subject to change anytime.
So far the specs are:
I have hornwort and rotala indica stuck into my aquarium gravel, as well as water sprite floating at the top of my 40 gallon tank. I have regular aquarium gravel and 1 15 watt light. Is this a good set up? My hornwort easily reaches the top of the tank, my water sprite is pretty small (about 1.5...
I went to the petstore today and picked up some rotala indica, water sprite, java moss, a lot of horn wort, and some malaysian trumpet snails. I have 40 gallon breeder tank, at 79 degrees fahrenheit, and a penguin 350 power filter. I also have 15 goldfish and rosy red minnows in total. I have a...

Hey I have a 29 gallon that supplies only 0.5 wpg with 1 inch Miracle Gro Organic Choice Potting Mix capped with 1 inch of gravel and I was wondering if Rotala Rotundifolia and Ludwigia Repens would grow in my tank. I dont mind if grows slow but just want to know if it will at least survive. If...
