  1. Hey all! I know (and have experienced) bristlenose plecos eating amazon swords, but I'm wondering if the same is true of clown plecos? In general, does this just apply to amazon swords or other varieties, including the melon sword and the red flame sword? This is a picture of the pleco in question by the way. I've never gotten a solid confirmation on his specific type, but I'm assuming clown pleco (I was given this fish, originally bought from an LFS for $50)? There is one other pleco in the aquarium that is definitely a clown pleco.
  2. I have a swordplant (Amazon sword?) that has been established in my tank for approx 3 years. I learned back in September of last year that it really needed root tabs, and once I started doing that it REALLY took off. However, I'm disappointed that I haven't been seeing any runners or "baby" swordplants. I did a decent size pruning last weekend due to all the shade it was creating, and hoped it would spur healthy new growth, but I'm not seeing anything new (might be a little too early to tell though.) Is there anything specific I can do to encourage propagation? I saw on a different thread someone recommended cutting the rosette into two and then voila, two plants. I am hesitant to take that approach because it is so happy and well rooted in the tank. Any tips? I give it Easy Green Root tabs every few weeks and dose the tank with Easy Green (mainly for other plants' benefit.) Note about the pic: the plant is not rooted in that rock, it is just behind it. Poor perspective.
