Ok. I added 6 bunches of Hygrophila difformis in this 60-gallon tank. I 
guess I'll be giving it away soon but if it helps reduce the time before 
fish can comfortable live in the tank I'll be very happy. It also looks 
pretty nice :-) About how long does it take for the plants to pull the 
nitrogenous species out of the water column? I know this depends on 
variables but let's say the temp is around 80 F; light is adequate, NO2 
around 3 ppm, NO3 around 50 ppm, GH about 125, KH 340, and low levels of 
Kent Freshwater Plant Supplement have been added.
