This is my apsitogramma 29; it has had a rough time over the past 2 years. It sprung a leak (aqueon tank quality is wonderful); it had substrate that compacted and built up a lot of anarobic activity as well as sulfphuric gases (i've learned to replace substrate quite effecitvity) and well it just doesn't grow plants as well as its sister tank but it still does a fine job - the sister tank has black substrate and guppies - must be the guppies they make everything grow (this tank and the sister are low tech the above 40 went high-tech in dec so just 6 months):

This was my 5 gallon tank. Actually it is still the same tank but i changed the lights so it doens't quite have the same surreal colouring. I've grown about a dozen banana plants over my various years and all have died without growing a single new leaf. Then i picked up two more a couple of months ago and figured they would die off since they never grow. I put one in my 5 and one in my 40b. No big deal. Well actually i now have a problem. They both grew and grew and grew. I gotta say banana plants are not small plants. They really dominate both tanks and i'm undecided what to do with them.... Not a bad plant but i would not be surprise if they could fill out a 200 gallon tank given time.

The scientific name is Hygroryza aristataI especially love the betta's tank!
Does the "Asian water grass" have whitish rhizome-type things (nodules?)? Yours looks much more textured & robust than what's making the rounds in my club...but similar...Nobody seems to know it's name...Do you?
