    Unknown Plant

    Can anyone ID this plant for me? I've been keeping it in my apisto tanks for at least 20 years and have never known what it is. It grows slowly but can get very tall. Older plants will reach from the substrate to the surface. It's common for plants to grow with their leaves above the water. I've...

    Romer Book - Used

    As Mike Wise and others have discussed, the Romer book "Cichlid Atlas Vol 1" is no longer available from most book sellers. I was just on Amazon looking at things and discovered that they have a single copy available as a used book. However, it is quite expensive - $1,858.92! I don't think...
