It's now been one week and one day since I started this setup. In comparison to my high tech iwagumi scape, this tank is a cakewalk. I did the first water change today. It's only really necessary every 2 weeks (or, depending on tank size and evaporation, a little less than that) but I wanted to just go ahead and do one.
The whole tank. It's really showing some nice growth.
Top-down shot. Check out the growth (especially in the L. palustris 'red')!
Side view of the L. palustris 'red,' which has grown the most so far.
Front view. Can't wait to watch this one grow out.
The growth rate, under the right conditions, of Wabi Kusa is quite amazing. The L. palustris 'red' really is growing at about 1/2 cm per day. The Hemianthus micranthemoides took a hit when I left it uncovered for the day to test its resistance to low humidity but is well on its way back. The Hydrocotyle sp. is slowly but surely on its way, and the Bacopa Wabi Kusa is spreading more horizontally than vertically, but that's okay.
Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome!
