My frogbit came in and was placed in the tank Friday. It's now sunday and about 5 or 6 of the plants have already put out a flower.

Is your driftwood still bleeding tannins?

Oh that's nice! Are they the same as lily pads?

Never has since i've had it but it was used before. The picture is just taken during the day in weird lighting.

I don't think so. Lily pads do float on the surface but i believe they are actually rooted in the ground giving them the ability to over winter in some cold states.

These just float with their roots exposed but have the same look as a tiny lily pad.

Yes, they're neat! My gouramis would love that!
So I guess you don't have a hood on the tank, then, or do you?

Just give them a week and they will be covering the whole surface of the tank :hmm3grin2orange:

Your tank doesn't look like it has much algae? It looks good from here :19:

I'll have to take an updated picture. Since i've had them they have doubled in quantity BUT it looks like some of the leaves have been burned.

So i don't know if something has eaten them, they got too hot under the lights, or something else i'm unaware of.

They propogate so fast...it is completely normal for the larger outer leaves to die off so don't panic :c3: LOL I just remove the leaves going dead once in a while ... get ready to either sell a lot or throw a lot away as it grows so quickly :19:
