    omg, you named all/most of them?
    I've yet to name a fish...maybe it's because my tanks always have soo many of them? LoL!

    and I gotta ask, why BB? (thinking it stands for Big Belly)

    BB is just her name. She isn't old enough to start making drops (for that matter, her brother hasn't been trying to mate yet, which is odd for his age).
    It doesn't mean anything particular.

    hehe, I like the cherry shrimp on top of the panty hose ball?

    I notice your water is still yellow, are you running incansec. (sp.) lighting over it that's creating that color?

    It's only yellow in the images =P I use just regular lights on my tank.

    Oh, and yes. it is panty hose, filled with a mix of dirt and some gravel. Seeing if it help the plants grow (Anthony reminded me that L.Repens doesn't like sand >>; )

    could always plant it in a terra cotta pot with a bit of eco? Just put a piece of plastic across the bottom of the pot where the hole is to plug it so that way if you ever had to pull it out the 2 substrates won't mix.

    lol. too late now =P

    I think I may have seriously shocked the plants on a large scale... leaves are a dark color and they seem to be staining the tank water....

    I've got them too (I believe the ones you probably got are originally from my tank since I sent Anthony some a good while back) and I've never had them "stain" the water? Sure I've had leaves come off them, but I've never heard of this type of plant (or any other for that matter) staining water?

    Are you sure it's the plant and not something else? (driftwood. the mix within the pantyhose ball)

    I think it's just the leaves died when I placed them in the dirt, I had them out of water for a good while. I wasn't thinking =/
    most of the leaves seem to have died, and they may be releasing the tannins and what not in them into the water. It's turning the water a yellow brown.

    I rinsed the panty hose and what not off really well prior to the adding to the tank.

    believe it or not the leaves will come back, I had bunches that came in drier than a fall leaf and they all bounced back.

    sounds like not enough substrate, plants can be a real pain in the butt sometimes

    I'm betting on the shock theory.

    Those are the ones I've been keeping. Those L.Repens are from Anthony. A few in this tank made it.
    It's not yellow simply cuz the Camera's different.
    But, it was green till Yesterday XD Like the other two tanks. It's got me frustrated!!!!
