    Can't help you there. I'm hoping it will clear over the next day or so ...that way I can get to my lfs and see if they have any plants I'd be interested in.
    I want a fast grower like my p. cabomba to plant in the right back of the tank.
    That and I want something like a java plant for the far right corner.
    Post it on here on the site and state it just like that. That your looking for guppy grass or something similar to trade for java moss.

    Do what lemon did and ''Invite some friends over for dinner''
    And yep moving tanks is hard,, When we bought my 30 gal I had to move it up the stairs all by myself now that was a pain.

    That crap grows with no lights! Seriously it is an invasive weed. They do sell it as an aquarium plant but NOTHING stops that stuff from growing. I had is successfully growing in less than 1/2 watt per gallon!

    Yes duckweed is a weed.

    Yes stargrass works with any other plants. They are both weeds IMO because BOTH are HIGHLY invasive and will try their bests to take over your tank!

    Just picture this Guido:
    5 plants = 1 bunch

    I bought 1 bunch

    6 months later I had over 300 plants and my 125 halfway packed with this stuff! It scares the crap out of me!
