    The plant can grow pretty much out of water anyway.

    plant question

    Well nothing beats hygrophila polysperma which is why it is invasive. I have to trim my polysperma twice a weak. But im sure if you have enough lighting araguaia would grow great because it is pretty easy to grow also.

    plant question

    Just found out that it is illegal to sell it because it is on the invasive species list but some places sell it illegally. Its a shame it is such a beautifull plant. I collected it myself from a river which is technically not illegal. Ebay sells it though. Mine is even turning red at the top.

    How to setup a quarantine tank?

    I have never used a quarantine tank so I dont know for sure but you might need to get one because your water is different from the fish store. Plecos are pretty hardy and in my opinion do not get as stressed like other fish but it is up to you.

    Is he (pleco) okay?

    My pleco eats whenever I put anything into the tank and if I bump into the tank or get o close to the tank she swims away. And yes mine does sometimes sit in one spot like yours does right in her cave. Can you get a better picture.

    I looked at all of the fry and only one out of like 20 is albino so I guess that bronze is the dominant gene.

    corydora fry questions

    How would I add sand to the little container with them in it? I will probably wait like 2 weeks then put one into the new setup and if he survives the transfer I will do all of them.

    guppies and platies

    I recently went to a pond place near my house and they had mostly pond plants but they had alot of anacharis that was very healthy and like 2 or 3 feet long and it was super cheap. If you find a pond place near you I would see if they have it.
