    Honestly, I agree. It was a major PITA to get it out of the tank I posted a pic of actually, took months!

    Also anacharis won't actually stay floating. It sinks at times, it's weird, often it's used in science classes. It's a great plant as well though, highly oxygenating. I find out best to lightly tie the stands of anacharis with thread into a bunch and weigh it down with thread tied to a rock or some kind of aquarium-safe anchor. I'll try to find a pic. ..

    Do you know what the worst thing is-its in the 75!!!! With the re-scape there were some anubias and a big ol' Java growing emmersed on the background and there was a good dozen-20 duckweeds in the Java. I was so ticked...I am so careful not to bring anything from the upstairs tanks down to the 75-but someone (she will remain nameless because she did such a bang up job scaping) likes to share tools (planting shears/tweezers) and like I said it just takes one little weed. Thankfully there is a good current and duckweed hates currents-so it never really took off but they are impossible to entirely remove. Ever try getting an eggshell piece out of eggs...the bugger goes everywhere but in your hand/net/spoon...you get my drift. Its maddening

    Poor you Boundava, I know exactly what you are going through. I just kept swishing the water's surface until all the little duckweed pieces broke loose of any emersed plants and caught them with a brine shrimp net. For months.

    I think that is my tank you are asking about, anacharis.

    It is a 10g bowfront that I use as a grow out tank for young angelfish. Right now, there's only a female blue ram in there, soon to move out.

    Yeah, I don't know, anacharis just grows well, like an inch everyday. I only have a 10w spiral CFL lighting the whole tank for 7hrs. I think I might have used a bit of fertilizer, but is really not necessary with anacharis. Try to find polyester thread. The cotton stuff will just decay quickly and your anacharis will free.

    And if you're intetested, just like java fern and anubias, don't tie the plant stems/strands too tightly. The bottom of the plant will rot and 'cut off' the top part. It will also send out rooter anchors on its own and attach to gravel. I had a nice bunch of it growing in a corner of my 46g bowfront, but not anymore. It always did ok for me, but I prefer it to look at least a bit in control. If left to go free, it'll develop all sorts of side shoots and look messy, but then again, maybe that's your thing.....to each their own-right?

    yeah i will probaby look for polyester thread, it's easy to find for sewing lol...and white which means no dyes. May be there soon but don't know we'll see what the next 24 hours holds.
