Jimmy, I have two discus in my tank. They are a pair. The other discus is just shy. Winter in hawaii is normally the rainy season. Its been ok so far this year. Marc let me know how is grows for you. You got the smallest stem that I brought to the meet.

I am back in cali, my tank looks like it has survived. Plants were growing out of the water. The stellata and hemigraphis turned into some sort of emersed growth. Only plants that looked worse off was the toninas (lack of NO3?). Will post some updates.

Have always wondered what your tank looks like. Nice jungle you have there.

Might have to pick up a stem of Hemigraphis Traian from you sometime. That's one very unique looking plant.

Eric no problem, that plant is growing fast. I'll save one for you at the next meet. If you think that was a jungle take a look at this after 2 weeks of not trimming. Here are some updates

right after vacation

ianiwane,

Nice journal. The trim really improved the overall look of the tank, and added dimension and contrast The very green, thinly leaved plants in the back is a real beauty. Please tell me the name of it.

Ludwigia sp Guinea, one of my favorite plant's, where did you get the Erio Goias? I want one, I am out of room at this time though, when it split's, I will trade you a E. Moto Grosso for a E. Goias

Looking nice Ian.

I'll think about it Craig. I had some plants shipped from Singapore. I set up a group buy with the SFBAAPS club. I bought 2 but only one made it. I want to get a couple before I sell or trade.
