- Post-Flame Moss Haircut Part 2
Well I went to the LFS and traded some Flame Moss for some flora. They had some Rotala Macrandra but the specimens they had didn't look so good. They had some holes in the leaves and only a slight pinkish red on their tops, perhaps they were going through some deficiencies. They didn't look anything like the deep red pics I've been seeing online. Knowing that this particular LFS has some of the most beautiful plants that are well kept, coupled with the difficulty I read on R. Macrandra, I decided to skip that plant, thinking I might not do any better than the LFS.
So I decided on some Alternanthera reineckii 'rosaefolia' instead. I also picked up a stem of Blyxa Japonica.
Now for the changes... I moved all the R. Colorata to the center to create a more dense bush. I then planted the A. Reineckii on the right and the B. Japonica on the left. I removed the Anubias Petite and moved one stone. I also did some painstaking and very tedious removal of some fluval stratum my shrimp just love to move to the sandy nook area.
So seriously, I really wish I didn't name this thread "iwagumi" inspired because it has evolved to be a fusion of iwagumi, dutch, and nature scape... who knows what to call it?
Without further ado... I'll stop my yappin' and get with the pics already
