Shiny Time! (Pic Heavy)

About a year ago, I had a plant that was very precious to me.  It grew well in my tank, and quickly turned into a huge bush.  Unfortunately, I lost that plant to an algae dip, and was never able to find another.  My special plant spy spotted one, and picked it up for me.  I'm hoping that our pleco will be less lazy this time around (yeah right). ;)

 

The new plant is in the glass bowl, beside the driftwood.  It's called Aponogeton Bovianus, and while it may initially melt quite badly, it will come back strong.  I have it potted in dirt, with a cap of gravel, and sand on the tippy top.

:rofl3  No money, honey! A plant will just have to be shiny enough for all of use.  :hi5 :hi5

 

Yes, we have been working out.  The four of us are especially good at food-in-mouths.  We chew for speed, agility, and accuracy.

Congrats on finding another plant like the one you lost.  That must have made you feel great finding one. :)  It's really pretty.

Your Amigo's look like big boys.  Big handsome boys. :)  Your tank looks wonderful, Tammy.

:hide: Your new plant looked soooo familiar! Sure enough, it was the same kind as I had when I first started the 40b. I ended up throwing all four away! :yikes

~~~~~~

I hope it thrives for you!fingerscrossed.gif

You should have told me you were looking for those :o I have seen them on the plant list for our order from time to time. And I think I may have seen them at a Petsmart or petco.
