This plant was marked as a Potamogeton GayII but it doesn't look like the other photo I found of this plant.

Doesn't look the same as this one to me.

This plant is whimpy with thread like leaves. The other picture I put up (that didn't come up) looks more palmy. Either way, I can tell just by looking at this plant that this won't get it for me. Either it won't stay in the substrate because there's nothing to hold it in there, the loaches will rip it out or it will rot at the base and be a mess in my tank.

Just talking from experience here. LOL

Carol, the Gayii was not good. I substituted Rotala Nanjenshan. Sorry, I forgot to tell you. If not happy let me know & I will refund. Thanks.


Now we know! And I will probably find out now they are planted in the wrong place and need tons of light. :)

Was about to say that's a cultivar of Rotala, just wasn't sure which one.
It will need lots of light and iron supplements to keep that color; otherwise, it'll just be a green stem plant.

Dave, when I checked this plant online it was green, and pretty. It wasn't this crummy looking brown. Green is good.....brown is not.
