    I added a red tiger lotus to my tank in attempt to get a red plant to thrive in my low tech planted tank. It grew like wildfire and I was very happy with it until one day I noticed the bulb broke off. The bulb sat at the bottom of the tank for a few weeks, rolling around, without any sign of life. A few days ago I saw some green roots coming out of it. It was hard to see as it wedged itself behind my driftwood. I came down this morning to find it floating with brand new leaves!

    This is my only bulb plant, but it is really neat.

    Nice looking tank. Are those barbs or tetras in the upper left of the pic?

    Thanks!

    They are purple Harlequin Rasboras. They are a bit overweight.

    I love the red lotus plants. I need to grab some next time I see them.
