Tank looks beautiful as always. Eagerly awaiting that UG to fill in...going to look amazing. Lush green is always good. Any reason why it looks a tad brown?

Stirred up soil (just a guess)?

Always curious.

Cannot do that.

My email was never updated and from a very old earthlink.net account. Been on the site for about 9 years. So it will send updates etc to that account, not this one. Just never updated since I know the password for this site and never had an issue.

No issues personally, except that if you have a gold member account, you have to buy another one to keep it active. Simply registering with a new name etc, does not address that issue.

I should have updated the email, but it's been years and I've never had an issue. Mistergreen thinks is a corrupted user list, perhaps a spam bot was data mining. Over load on the server etc. We/the Admin may never really know.

But it needs taken care of. Since I cannot rese it since there is no longer any account at earthlink, I'm SOL with that method. They(TPT) can trace the payment I made via paypal to my new email for the old account, even if the email does not match registration, the new email does match paypal.

So even if I have a 256 bit encryption, the corrupted user list would have not mattered in my case

I have some 256 bit stuff. Takes a few decades at least to crunch those passwords, if not longer.

It happened to me too the other day. I had to reset my password.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

Enough of my whining.










I will likely try some Rotala macrandra or some type similar in this hole in the corner.
In the opposite corner, I'll whack the Rotala wallichii and remove it. Then allow the Rotala " vietnam" to fill in.

The UG is still filling in and rooting well, it tends to grow up, then a bit ratty, needs a little trimming etc, then it starts to make a nice dense rug after wards, check back in 3-4 weeks and it should be nice and dense.
Many seem to think it's not doing well at this stage, but a little patience rewards well.







Also looking for ideas to replace the Syn belem in the rear with something else, Syn. "Lago grande" would be nice, but tough to find. Perhaps another red plant species. Cannot clash with the pantanal, R vietnam or L tornado, so larger leaves.

I'm surprised that you haven't played with Ludwigia 'atlantis' in this tank yet. Might make a nice addition if you can find a good spot for it.

It looks like the common Ludwigia weeds here in Ca, L cf peploides.
Not impressed.

I already have a nice red Ludwigia.

Whaaaa... are we talking about the same plant? http://www.rareaquaticplants.com/ind...te&Itemid=186#
Reminds me of L. senegalensis if anything, though i see you already have bucket loads of that.
L. peploides doesn't really even grow under water and wouldn't make a good aquarium plant, as i'm sure you know.
To each his own though.

Yes, we are talking about the same weed.
I've seen the plant, just not doing it for me personally.

See how picky I've gotten now? Plant snobbery I tell ya.

What other ideas ya got?

How about some Ludwigia alata in the background where that gap is? Or my personal favorite, Ammannia latifolia? Good luck finding either of those in sizable quantities though... i'm just spewing out random plant names, don't mind me.

im not sure if i already asked this, but how do you control your CO2? do you have it on a timer, ph controller, just set a bubble rate and leave it alone, etc?

what about one of the h. corymbosa var? i always loved the look of that plant. the pretty big leaves on it should be a decent contrast to the l. tornado.

I've tried as few Alternantheras with larger round leaves, they do not fair well over time, even in the shaded spots, they get too much light and the growth is driven too fast for them to keep up.

In lower light shaded spots, they do very well for me. I'd like a nice large leaf species other than lilies..........that's manageable. Red and can grow well in the locations.

Most are common weeds generally, so finding something special and that does well, has the color also = one tough order.
