So my Dwarf Emerald Rasboras are finally plumping up nicely and coloring up nicely. However getting them to expose themselves & pose for the cam is the challenging part.

Added a new Erio 'red' australia courtesy of legomaniac (bottom left hand corner). The HC has def taken off and it's staying in tact so I'm pretty pleased with it. The big Erio (can someone ID it for me... it was sold to me as e. japan but I'm pretty positive it isn't) has sent tons of new roots down as you can see and has gotten alot bigger in diameter. Awesome plant and very easy to grow imo. It's almost time to do another trim on the Limno 'mini' so anybody who want's some, I'll be selling soon. On with the pics... lemme know what you guys think.

And all the GSA that comes along with it right? I can never get rid of GSA.

Did you know the fuzz algae that came on some of your plants are already gone. I like those pennyworts alot man. They already sprouted 2 new leaves and are growing fairly quick.

Pssshhh, if you saw all the GSA in my tanks, you'd know that it wouldn't bother me too much. As long as it stays off the plants, I'm cool with it.

I think the pennywort is Hydrocotyle verticillata. I have H. leucocephela too, but I don't think I sent any of that too you. FYI, one of the crypts you sent me that I'm growing emersed has new growth on it. One step closer to a positive ID

Cool dude! For emersed growth do you still need to feed them ferts or do you just use potting soil and leave em be? Do excuse my ignorance man haha.
