  1. Hello, I set up some tubs outside this spring for the first time, with guppies and shrimp. They don't have any filtration, but have abundant amounts of guppy grass and hornwort. I'm in southeast Texas, so while the temperature will get down into the single digits once every 10 - 20 years, we go years with it never getting below 25°. I know I'll need to bring the guppies in long before that, but I'm wondering if I can leave the tubs set up with the plants in them to get a head start on next spring?
  2. Has anyone ever found that hornwort needles when converting to immersed growth have shed all over the place and killed their pleco? Water parameters are good and after last night, my biggest pleco that was nice and healthy was suddenly dead. No chlorine, no ammonia, low nitrates, low nitrites , but a bunch of brown sharp hornwort needles around where the dead pleco was. I though maybe it was something about the water change last time, but this time I hadn’t changed the water yet. Last time two died in this tank after a water change, but this one died before. The only constant in this tank (that I can think of) is the hornwort litter.
  3. I have some hornwort that does not stop shedding! All the hornwort in my other tanks are green and growing wonderfully! But the hornwort in one of my bettas tanks is not doing so great. Its shedding all the leaves. I know its not a lack of nutrients (I have nearly 40ppm of nitrates and about 1ppm of nitrites, and 0.25 ppm of amonia). I have read that hornwort will sometimes do this when first introduced to a new enviourment. But from what I have read online people will just imediatly trash the hornwort the second it starts shedding. If I leave it in there will it grow back? Should I get new hornwort from my other tanks to take care of that excess nutrintes and let the dying hornwort recover? All though I'm excited for the mulm the shedded leaves will make.
  4. Anyone have luck with this. I’m in love with it and can finally get it at my lfs. Half the things I read say if you can grow hornwort your tank will support it. Others say it’s delicate and temperamental. I’m only concerned it will fall apart. My one tank had hornwort for whatever reason it didn’t do well like it does in my other tanks and gave up the ghost really quick. What a mess I don’t want that again.
  5. Hi- I got some hornwort hoping it might naturally help with reducing my staghorn algae (not really privy to trying a bunch of chemicals, etc to get rid of it). These things shed a ton of needles though - I’m wondering if snails will go after the fallen leaves? I won’t worry to keep up too quickly with the cleanup if they or other critters would munch on it.
  6. For a tank with PH around 7 with cardinal tetras and a breeding group of L134
  7. I have a lot of floating Hornwort plants without roots. Can i sell them in bundles of eight stems as is or do i have to plant them till they get roots before I sell them? Thanks
  8. When Cory tells you it’s a fast growing plant the first thing you should do is go by and ax😊 I bought five Hornwort plants about two weeks ago maybe. They were about 6 inches tall when I got them and they look nice and healthy packaging was beautiful no problem. the picture of them is in 180 gallon tank 24 inches high in two weeks Cody certainly knows what he’s talking about. Thanks PS; I buy everything at the aquarium co-op so I forgot that I didn’t get these plants from Aquarium coop : I don’t member where I got them, but Cory did tell me it was a great growing plant. Thanks again Cory I
  9. Hi, I recently went to the LFS that I've had good experiences with and picked up some hornwort and think I might've gotten a few hitch hikers. My main question is about this one. It seems to have a sort of tail that seems kind of like the swimmerets on a dwarf shrimp. I've just noticed it, and can rule out it being current since I don't have a filter (Walstad Aquarium)
  10. So I found these really weird things in my hornwort I don’t know what they are they look like eggs but white and big... Thanks
  11. Hey everyone, I was wondering if anybody has experimented with putting aquarium plants in cold >50f water. I imagining that some can handle it. Thanks
  12. Hello, About 6 months ago I removed all the hornwort from my one tank that housed it and thought i was left with one little half inch clipping of it thats ive been nursing back to health. Well to my surprise i looked in a bucket on my back balcony that has maybe 3 inches of water in it and found that some Java moss and Hornwort were left in the bucket and have thrived! Now when introducing the hornwort the the tank should i let it free float too acclimate back to warmer water? Or should i plant it in the substrate? I know hornwort is a column so it will draw from the water column for food but will it being close to the light cause it to grow faster?(weird because it seems to enjoy being in a dark bucket with little light. Also i run a sponge filter so i dont have to worry about a HOB sucking it in.
  13. Hello, I am wondering what I should plant in this future shrimp tank. It’s a five gallon tank. I want to use plants I have in other tanks, but I’m not sure what’s best. I really want to do some dwarf hair grass because the light is so strong. I have some in a 20 gallon but it is shaded under a ton of hornwort. The only reason it’s growing, I think, is because their is a window that gives the tank direct sunlight for a couple hours in the morning. Anyways, should a get a carpet going and add hornwort later? I also have Anubias and vallisnera availible.
  14. Hello everyone! Is there a way to prevent new hornwort from shedding its needles when put into a new aquarium?
  15. @Cory how do you have an article about hornwort on the page but none to buy lol
  16. I recently bought my 4th tank. It's a 29 gallon that was set up 7/15 evening. The plan is a well planted tank with Guppies!! I've already put in my XL sponge filter from by 60 gallon to get things going. The 60 is an mbuna tank with 20 older juvies in it. It also has a Marineland 350. But I intentionally overfeed a bit to get these fish to grow. With everything running optimally, I can do a 50% weekly water change and keep the Nitrate to max 40 at water change time. But I'm worried that taking the sponge filter out will have a negative impact on this tank. I've already added 2 Amazon Sword from my LFS to the 29. But I also have hornwort in my 45 gallon. If I put the hornwort in the new tank, will that help get things going? I also added some cholla wood from an established tank. I ordered a Marineland 200 for this tank but I won't have that until 7/18. If I add the plants from an established tank and remove the sponge filter once I get the HOB, will that be enough to seed the tank?
