    Good morning all, can anyone name the plant with this arrow head shaped leaf? I thought it might be a type of anubias (there’s one in front of it), but I don’t think it has the same kind of root. Any ideas appreciated!

    Plants outside of the tank...

    Thanks! I didn’t think about a heater, good point. They’re currently in a water pitcher, in front of a window...weird that there’s no algae growing in them but maybe that’s because they don’t have a heater at this time? I’ll have to find a bigger container if I add a heater so they don’t boil...

    Plants outside of the tank...

    It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve been able to be here, and this is where I’m at now...I’ve re-homed my 3 Endlers and I and my cat (the entire reason for the fish tank!) miss them very much!, but; I found that what I was fighting wasn’t just any algae but that thing that was a bacto...

    So frustrated with conflicting info from various sites! Maybe a small rant?...

    Koglin & Essjay, LOL!! Thank you so much for those helpful explanations on how to do this. I’ll have to read them over again and again to even begin to understand that! I could feel the ‘glaze’ begin as I read o_O I am so liking this forum, the knowledge, the help, the sense of community- thank...

    Your Thank you for your response, something ‘clicked’ and I understand what everyone is trying to say. I’m a pretty black and white kind of thinker, and shades of gray are sometimes a little more elusive. :/

    So, really, this is all just proving my point. I know what parameters I’m working within, the plants are growing in their own perimeters, how hard can it be to match plants to situations? I guess this hard....(read here sarcasm and defeat....................)

    Sorry, not forum savvy. Yes, so your plant authority says that, but look up the same plant elsewhere and you’ll get different results. The same plant will need different requirements. I appreciate your response!

    So frustrated with conflicting info from various sites! Maybe a small rant?...

    I get what you’re saying, really I do... but you’re glossing over the very point of my issue... I know what my tank measurements are ... i.e.: low/med light (I have a dimmer), hard water, 8+ hrs of light per day (I have a timer),...just give me the HONEST plant requirements so I can grow to my...

    So would you think that the info sites would I get that, but aren’t the requirements of the plants the same? So if a plant needs soft water, high lights I won’t get it cuz that’s not what I have? Just tell me what the plant REALLY needs so that I can choose from there?

    So frustrated with conflicting info from various sites! Maybe a small rant?...

    Is there possibly any place to go for CORRECT information? I’m wanting to stock my small low tech tank with plants... I look up the same plant on different sites (even this one, sorry) and the same plant is easy/difficult, low light/ high light, needs co2/doesn’t need co2 and on and on and...

    Nope Colin T, I didn’t do my reply correctly, but it’s there. Sorry, I’m not tech savvy with the most basic things.
