  1. Default Guess I'll say Hi! :)

    Just wanted to drop in an introduce myself. Just another Texan getting into this great hobby. Been reading here for weeks, but didn't wanna post till my tank was ready haha. I've really loved fish an everything to do with them since I was tall enough to see into the 225g my grandmother maintained in her younger years haha .

    Well, my tank is pretty much outlined in my sig. Feel free to make any comments about it you'd like, always would appreciate the suggestions. And, yes, I realize that male bettas are SUPPOSED to not work in community tanks. But, my Ember really doesn't pay one bit of attention to the other fish except to move them out of his way when he wants to ride the bubbles to the top haha.

    Excuse how lightly planted it is, just put the wisteria in day before yesterday, plan on putting MUCH more plants in soon (Not to mention I've only been doing the whole aquarium thing for about 2 months lol). As for the big floating plants, I'm not 100 percent sure what they are. All I know about them is a LFS in my area has been growing them in his freshwater tanks since my grandmother used to buy from him (so atleast 15 years) and he gave me a few strands to toss in for some free floating plants lol.

    HI, and welcome to the AC

    First of let me tell you the plant in your tank is a money plant. And it should not be submerged in water it will eventually die and rot and give both you and your tank a lot of problems.
    I would take it out immediately if not sooner.
    When everything goes without a hitch its only then do you realize something is wrong

    Welcome aboard. I believe afro123 is right about the plant in some respects. It really looks like whats called the money plant, but probable will survive in the tank but is listed as toxic to animals and people if consumed, not that you plan on eating it I'm sure,

    Welcome to the AC...

    You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

    sorry wayhilc but this kind of plant should only have its roots submerged and like I said the leaves should not be submerged

    to AC! Glad to read you've moved from viewing to posting.

    funny, I was going to say, no, that's not a money plant, it looks like a devils ivy...lol turns out they are the same thing. It's not an aquatic plant, but I think its kinda hard to argue with 15 years of use. Same as any plant - you remove what shows signs of decay.

    The plant looks like a pothos to me. I keep them as houseplants, potted in soil. But they can also grow with their roots in just water and I'll have cuttings like that for long periods of time. I don't think it will last completely submerged, though.
