40g planted 4 months update!
Here is what it looks like after 4 months.
Plants are doing good except for the water wisteria, it grows well but the leaves are weak and droopy. don't know what is wrong with them.
Fishes have been good so far. schools of neon tetras, rasboras and rummynoses. 4 SAE, a chinese algae eater and 2 Bolivian rams.80g Oscar Tank

Well thats a plant I couldn't ID! I can post more and closer pictures if it can help IDing it.
It is super fast growing, 1 ft per month and is 4 ft tall now ( 2 ft above the water surface )
It seems when it gets too tall or goes out of the water, its lower leaves start dying! or maybe some of its requirements are not met in my tank.80g Oscar Tank

The main stem of the long plant is placed in the back of the tank. in the first month it reached the surface then I cut it in half and placed the second half in the front ( the one you can see ) within a month it grew to the air again. I couldn't find another place to cut and put it in so I just decided to let it be!!
some of the giant hygros also grow out of the water, I had one 1 ft over the water but they die after a while. this long one is very hardy.
I looked at my new pictures and this is the only one that contains the whole plant! lol
