    Yes I believe it is a tricky little plant lol!
    It was one of the plants @TetraJacques was so kind to give me so I'm going to try my hardest to get them to grow :D
    Maybe then with the creeping Jenny I can get one of those little plant holders that stick to the glass and then it can stick out of the water..

    Growth has been slow, but I'm actually really happy that these plants are growing still, considering my previous badluck with plants :D

    So I went shopping today (yaaay) and came home with some new fish friends!
    6 neon tetras and 3 black neons (so I now have 6 black neons in total) amd 4 female guppies so the 2 boys have some company too lol..
    Sadly couldn't find any head and taillight tetras or otos, so next week I'll go looking for those plus some snails.
    I also bought a bacopa monnieri that I've planted in the back right corner of the tank.

    Looking great @T. Guppy !
    Yes I also hate shopping in general but love shopping for fish / plants way too much :lol:
    Another cheap and easy stem plant that fills out nicely and quickly is Ludwigia Repens.
    Ottos are social creatures so buy at least 3. Else they’ll be shy and miserable. I love ottos!

    Thank you!
    I got 3 more otos today and got a stow away (which you've seen in my other thread).
    I'm now quite happy with the stocking, so I'll leave them to all settle now and hopefully everyone will be healthy and happy!
