Okay, been half a month or so..So I decided to post a few pix I had taken. I added a Wild Green Oto (Epactionotus aky) from Uruguay and a Sumo Loach to my tank here recently, hopefully they will both survive. Everything seems to be growing nicely except for R. Macrandra, it is growing up great but the colors are less than impressive. So I am changing my fert dosing, because I believe I have too much KNO3 right now, I over dosed because I measured out my liquid additive wrong when I made the batch, so scratched it and started over with a new bottle and did it right this time, since my last batch started to grow mold in the water, no good. So I had probably about 80ppm or so in NO3, so I stopped dosing last week and did a tank change and it is still at 30ppm about..UGH! So, new plan will hopefully work. Also recieved a green tiger lotus from a local guy (Thanks VeeSe!!)..
ANYWAYS, here we go:
Tank starting to fill in nicely, just gave it a BIG trim and gave a bunch of plants away to a local person who's tank had crashed while he was in India for 2mo..hopefully they will work for him.
Definitely not looking as good, but it will come around..
L. Aromatica finally shooting up nicely..
Cant remember the name Hydrocoyle or something, but finally pushing off nicely.
Suspect "C. Nurii" giving me lots of runners, so I will throw this in an emersed setup to flower it and get it's real ID..
New Green Tiger Lotus, all the leaves melted, but its coming back slowly but surely.
Here's my new Green Oto, though he isn't very green right now because I believe he didn't get much algae in the tank he came from, but used to be green as the underside of a leaf 5mo ago. keeping my fingers crossed.
A plant from my 10gal, looking great!
Also Finally got a few shots of my fish up close:
And up close of the green oto, Epactionotus aky (I believe).
