    Have I told any of you that I am kind of a dumbass? I always tell people "reasearch before you buy" and "know what you're getting before you get it." Sometimes I wish I'd listen to myself...

    So I'm in Petco (mistake #1) and I see a bunch of plants on clearance. They are in those little plastic tubes that they sell plants in. They are marked "Live Aquatic Plant, For Freshwater Aquariums." They are cheap and look cool so I say what the hell and buy a few bunches.

    Turns out the plant isn't an aquatic plant. It dies when maintained underwater. Oh well, maybe I'll make a terranium.

    Visit me at Rochester Aquarium Service or read my blog for information on selecting Attractive Aquarium Stands

    Really means to research before you buy, as Troy obviously did, since he knew what he was looking at.

    Hey, how is your plant doing so far? Is it alive (underwater)?
    I got that today... replacing another non-aquatic plant (javanicum fern)(Petsmart) with it...
    :(
    this seems so confusing... why would "TopFin" sell something as aquatic when it is not? Interesting...

    I purchased several of this plant (hygrophila difformis (wisteria) from pet smart on 7/17/09 and have had much success with them. They have grown and are beautiful plants that I enjoy. They are fully submersed and have been for the entire time that I've had them. Not one of the plants have died... Maybe the water you have them in is too hard.. check into that.

    The problem isnt that his water is too hard, its that the plant cant survive underwater
    Don't call it a comeback, I've been here for years.
