Roots? Sprouts?

Recommended Posts

Hey everybody! I finally took the plunge and got live plants for my guppy tank: 3 bunches of anacharis! I'm just so proud of 'em :P

So anyways. I've had these plants for one week today, and I've noticed some odd string-like things growing out of the stems of the plants. Some of them are growing straight down, much like roots. Here are some pictures to help explain:

Sorry about the sideways-ness.

Are these roots? Or possibly new growth....? Should I do anything about these? Is it a good sign? This is my very first experience with live plants, so any information is welcome!

Those are roots, and it is a good sign. It means the plants are in a favorable enviroment for growth. I would leave them as they will help anchor the plant in the substrate (gravel) not to mention help them absorb nutrients

Yep, I noticed those in mine the other day, too. I took it as a sign that they really liked my ice cold water!
