what is the rediculously bright green fluffy plant right dab in the middle there?
i like its contrast to everything else
I'd originally sot to use that, but tried the Erio setaceum type 3, it just did not do as well as this weed. the Erio does not like crowding, I have it doing great in my 180, where it gets few trims, plenty of room and such. The tanks both have the same light, bulbs, sediment, dosing, water changes, fish loading and feeding etc, CO2 is a bit different, but the plant did well when it was not crowded in the 120, then as it filled in, not so hot.
It also does not do well in the 180 when it's crowded also.
The Limnophila gigeatea is a nice large dramatic weed, can handle aggressive pruning. Takes about 2 minutes a week to trim it, and yes, it needs trimmed weekly. Puts on 2-4" a week easily.
Nice contrast plant.
