No sump here, but I gotta try something. Only gonna be a 15 buck investment, hopefully they survive and help me out.

As I understand it, these are floating plants, so in they go. Yes? No?

Mine just float, when you put them in they will die off a little until they adjust to the new water condition.

mine was a week or 2 so before I saw any new growth, I also give them a lot of light in my sump and now it grows up a couple of inches out of the water.

Filters are a pair of AC 110's, and the tank is luckily one that has lights, window right there too so with any luck this should work ok.

Why don't you add Pothos (spelling) into the top of your AC110's ?
