I have a similar question. I was told to include fast growing plants
in my new tank to compete with algae, and I did. That was a month ago.
Although it was initially exciting to see the stem plants grow 1-2" a day, I
now feel that those fast growing plants are a pain, since they have to be
taken out and cut in half once each week. [I have a 100 gal. with 220 watts
of compact flourescents, and a CO2 system.]
When is a tank no longer new, so that you don't need those stem
speedsters? I already removed the Parrot Feather, since that was rediculous.
The ambulia will be next, even though I love it.
