Kind of neat. Called Anubias "Nana"

Definitely a relative of peace lily, at least I think it should be because of the flower.

They are neat, if you watch the buds will produce an air bubble over 45 seconds (I counted....) that then separates and flows to the top and POPS haha

All the leaves have air bubbles underneath.

It's what they do, I think it is so neat.

It's not even in soil. It's in my Sandy part, strictly sand. Cool

The bubbles are called periling . It's the plant making O2. The flower should go to the top of the water then open. It will be a while cone shapes flowers mad up of a bunch of little balls. Nice job I've never had one flower for me and I've only seen it like once or twice

I'll take more when I'm home in an hour. And it has opened completely underwater, white cone thing just like you said.

My tank is full of so many plants, it's not done by any means, just crowded until I get my others set up.

I see why some people despise java moss too

O wait no way. Is that your java?

OK buddy. Your hostage on this thread until you tell me what your setup is.

Lol... the plant in the middle is a Amazon sword. They get quite big. There is a quod T5 over the tank, a 5 lbs CO2 next to the tank and I mix my own fertilizer.

Now can I have a glass of water and a bath rum brake. I promis I won't run. Lol

Oh and there is some Riccia fluita mixed in with my java moss. It's a roles plant that does vary well as a floater . Java moss will attach itself to anything . So you can mold it. When you trim it shut off your filter filter and scoop out the trimmings with your net or it will go all over and take over your take over your tank.

This is beautiful -- I love anubias! Congratulations on the flower!! These plants need their rhizomes exposed in order to grow properly, otherwise they'll rot, so you've done the best thing by not burying it in the substrate. :-)

The aquarium is looking good, I can't wait to see it as it develops, Bhart (hint hint!). The bamboo-looking plant you have is, unfortunately, not fully aquatic, and any leaves beneath the water level will rot and foul the water. The other plants are looking great!!

Hungry Plants, your aquarium is gorgeous!
