    like the title says,
    their seeds are growing all around the tank, apollo is known for trecking off with food and leaving it,
    so because theyre small and I didn't notice, they're growing....
    should I leave it? or take it out?
    I just noticed it today,
    I thought it was mold but then there were shoots and some have little buds and its only been a few days (I think)

    I doubt it will overgrow in the tank, you can think them out if you want to.

    I don't think it matters as long as they have room to climb and stuff. We had 3 live plants for them to climb, they like them better than fake but my larger crab went nutso and broke them, so now I have a fake one till I can buy new live ones that are a little sturdier. I wanted to maybe but it small pea plants and maybe a flower that they can eat, just to liven things up a bit for them and my room.
    It looked like I had 3 different plants growing (they've sorta died, I smooshed em on accident :dontknow:)
