    This Anubis is attached to a lava rock (how I purchased it over a year ago). The root system has grown out of control but I've let it as I think it looks really neat and my tiny inhabitants seem to dig it. My question is am I harming it by letting it get this way? Am I suppose to be trimming...

    Just Planted!

    I got some dwarf grass from the LFS in those weird gel packs. After cleaning it I broke it into much smaller clumps, stuck some of those weird flourish stones deep into the gravel, and popped the clumps within six inches of each grass clump. My cories seem VERY interest in these plants...

    What's Going On With This Plant (Pics)?

    I've got four of these sword plants, they were doing fine when I first put them in the tank. But now new leaves grow in distorted (ravelled edges, small, orange/red tint on the edges).
