RE: [APD] Repost about hornwort, and a new question about Java Fe rn

I don't know much about hornwort, so I can't really answer those questions
for you.  The extent of my knowledge about it is that I think it is actually
a floating plant, much like anacharis.  I've seen it floating in local ponds
and lakes.

About your baby guppy population though.  As cruel as it might sound, you
might try a couple of gold barbs.  They stay pretty small, no bigger than 2
inches or so and they will eat ANYTHING.  I saw them devour one of my ghost
shrimp yesterday.  I've seen them pick off small snails.  I've seen them
ripping algae off of my plants.  I've seen them scouring for food in the
substrate like a couple of cories.  Believe it or not, I was just thinking
to myself earlier that they would probably eat my neons if they could suck
them down in one gulp.  I would not be in the least bit surprised if they
would eat baby guppies.

They are very active fish and will nip at each other and wrestle around, but
I have never seen them disturb any other fish.

Of course, YMMV yadda yadda yadda.

Tank is overcrowded with guppies (I need to find a fish to put in there to
eat the babies, that won't harass the adult males' flowing tails!)
