Hey all I was wondering if anybody has some red root floater (can't remember the scientific name) in their tanks. I really like the looks of this plant and was wondering about its requirements and if anyone has any tips on it.

Thanks Joe

It's a med to high light plant. You can probably find some on www.plantedtank.net in their buy/sell section. I've had great luck finding and getting plants there.

Very cool plant. Hope you find some. I got some at one time at aquabid.com. Had problems with the filter throwing it all over the tank tho but it is neat if that isn't an issue.

Ya its been tricky to find but there's a listing for it right now on aquabid, thanks guys. Oh ya and just wondering how's it growth slow or anacharis fast lol.

Use this for looking up plant http://www.plantgeek.net/plantguide.php . It's my favorite online resource for plants.

Definitely a fun and cool plant, had a problem like Lady Hobbs,does not seem to like flow... can't keep it in any of my tanks that have any filter going besides a sponge filter.

It can grow fast and get out of control just as fast as dwarf water lettuce or frogbit, but it's alot easier finding a new home for it since it's still highly popular (vs. duckweed, dwl or frogbit)
