I have a whole bunch of plants that I don't know what they are, I have gotten them at different times and I'm trying to be better about taking care of them, because they aren't very healthy looking. I would appreciate any tips or help with identifying them so that I can figure out what they need. Thanks!!!

Best guesses until one of the more knowledgeable peoples arrive...




1. If you ever find out, my wife wants them.

2. Rotala and Ludwigia?

3. Cabomba caroliniana (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cabomba_caroliniana)

4. Amazon Sword

5.

6.

7.

8. Java Fern

9. More rotala?

10.



You need more Water Sprite. Then all the other plants will die and you will only have Water Sprite. Very good for identification.

1. Hygrophila corymbosa (Giant Hygro)
2. Rotala Indica
3. Cabomba
4. Amazon Sword
5. Cypress Helferi
6. Red Rubin Sword
7. Java Fern
8. Bacopa
9. Microsword (Looks really thinned out and lacking nurients)

What type of light are you using? Also you have a lot of heavy root feeding plants. And you are using plain inert gravel. If you aren't using root tabs I would recommend getting some. Or getting nutrient rich gravel such as Flourite, Ecocomplete, or Aquasoil.

Right before the Java fern is a rubin sword plant. The last pic looks like http://tropica.com/en/plants/plantdetails/Lilaeopsisbrasiliensis%28040TC%29/4460.

Jeremy, you confused me with your numbering, b/c I only count 9 pics... :)

I am working on switching to a better substrate, I'm in the process of setting up a second tank(it's cycling) atm that has Ecocomplete for substrate, however, it isn't ready quite yet. I didn't want to swap all the substrate with all the fish and plants in there it seemed like it would be very disruptive. I'm currently using CO2, flourish, flourish iron, and root tabs, I just recently started the seachem stuff about a week ago. I have a high output light, it is a quad T5 I'm going to look into getting some more plant appropriate bulbs, and I've started reducing the on time to see if that helps. I don't have a green thumb, which is why I need help. :)

It was early.

I used to have plastic plants covered in Algae. We all start somewhere.
