    One more awesome episode. Love the frequency of new podcasts being published. Lots time and effort is involved in making these podcasts and we fish hobbyists truly appreciate it. 🙂

    A huge thanks to Art / JJ / Jurijs.

    Great episode Art and Jurijs! I’ve listened to you guys ever since I set up my aquarium about 6 months ago. You have helped me to avoid many of the common mistakes and for that I am very grateful!

    New to the podcast and this was one of the first ones I listened to, really good.

    Any chance you can provide the spelling of the plants you discussed in the podcast?

    And/or do you have a list of plants including pictures on your website?

    Thank you

      Hi Andrew,

      I will make sure we spell out the Latin names we use from now on. Unfortunately, we don’t have a plant database on this site. Tropica Aquarium Plants does have a nice one I would recommend.
