our plant seems to look healthy and stable. No flowers have bloomed yet and the leaves are mostly just green and no longer red. Our Betta male fish is still alive and well. The fish have been isolated from the others so it can swim peaceful in its ecosystem. when i observed the plant carefully i can see that new shoots are in fact growing from the top and some leaves are dying at the bottom. This same trend has been noted and seen in my home control experiment (plant). the water is changed 2x a week so the ecosystem stays healthy and clean.
