wingsdlc - ya my blyxa did great, until I started neglecting the tank. I think I used root tabs under each stem grouping, I'm sure this helped.

taz - i look at that photo and I think . . . . bring it on!! Seriously, I do want my tank to be a (healthy and balanced) jungle again. Hopefully I won't eat those words.

As you can see I like the healthy jungle as well.
Just watch the light blocking. If you decide they get too big, C. spiralis are similar (flatter leaves), but not as long. They seem to grow about the same rate as balansae, but in a tighter group. The balansae has spread runners almost to the front glass (It was originally planted 1" from the back).

Yea, I've got a spiralis to the left of where I planted the balansae -- it'll nice to see the comparison.

Did some arranging/rearranging, not sure if it's for the better just yet. There are some algae issues (hair, tuft, bba, you name it really!) but it's for the most part under control. Nice shot of the new Rams:



YOu can't see it in that picture, but the female has a crooked mouth kinda wierd. Hope the male still likes her

And here's a full shot. I'm planning on getting some blyxa in there again and removing out the anubias in the center of the tank. The C. Balansae is still under control but I'm betting in a week it's gonna need to be trimmed down.



I also shot a video of my ram eating MTS out of the substrate....need to find a place to post it!
