I am having a great problem. I have to many plants and they grow to much. I plan to make a 10g planted instead of a divided betta tank now because of it and I plan on giving some to a guy I know who has always wanted live plants. My 29g has too many plants in it that it's not really accessible. I have javamoss nearly an inch thick around driftwood and anacharis all over the place. This IS a good thing right?

Sounds that way, when you have to "thin the weeds" you must be doing something rightthumbs2:

I'd love to have a tank with to much growth... :19:

Ugh it is nice to say you have a tank like that but man, that light I guess really does help.

You could always send those plants to your buddy drum. I tell you what, I'll even let you pay shipping!

Lol, what about you pay shipping and pay for the shipping equipment and I will only charge you for the plants? LOL no but I would send you some if I knew how.

Your thread reminded me of a song.......

Rub it in, Rub it in..........

Lol it's great problem to have I guess.

It certainly is. I threw out more ammania gracilis and rotalla roundifollia from my tank simply because I had no other tanks it would grow in. Sounds good Kuli, got post a pic or 2.

I think I may be saying the same thing as you in another couple months. the plants that I introduced to my tank just a couple of weeks ago are starting to take off! I believe you are making lots of people here jealous of your so called "problem":c3:

03-19-2008, 04:02 AM
Lol. I will get a picture soon but I literally have plants that should be in the gravel floating because there is no room and they were offshoots from others and stuff. It's a problem.

*looks over at 10g, all a mess becasue my jellybean keeps pulling all the plants out and that's full of algae* sighhhh haha

Glad your plants are doing good, at least SOMEONE's are haha

Anachris and java moss will do that,it grows well in almost any condition.Anachris gets so thich in my pond in the summer you cant see the fish.I know what you mean about having plants that just grow too much,my ludwigia and when I had it my purple cabomba were unstoppable.The swords in my tank are always in need of a massive trim.Congrats on your pondweed doing so well Kuhli.:c1:

Way to go Kuhli! I, too, have more plants than I know what to do with. Floating plants, no. My fish seem to enjoy eating them. But all my other plants are growing tremendously well. My pride and joy " Tiger Lotuses " are doing fabulous. I have 2 now that have developed nice leaves. One is crimson red, and is just starting to "see the light" so to speak. The other one is red, with green spots, and is right in front of the aquarium so I can monitor its growth. For being only a pea size bulb, the thing exploded!

It's nice that you are having sucess with living plants. Gives the hobby more "fun" as now you have life everywhere!

They don't want them sadly. I used some in a 10g.
