    Plant questions!

    Hi, I have a very sad looking 200l Fluval Roma which I'd love to make a jungle of plants. I've got a 70cm piece of "talava" (?) wood which is soaking in a tub at the moment.

    I forgot the name of these plants

    Hey, some time ago I bought a few plants and I forgot what they were exactly. They are all types of rotala but it's a bit hard to realise which one they are since they changed color in my aquarium (probably the light spectrum).

    Moss balls & parasites

    I just got 2 Marimo moss balls because they r beautiful & low maintenance live plants. I have no other live plants in my tank so I'm hoping these work out. Currently they r washed & put in a jar for a couple weeks because I'm paranoid to put them in my tank with my fish. I was wondering if...
