Okay good. It does that for me sometimes. That's why I haven't been posting allot of pics. I have to try that Gimp....

I think I will be trimming the blyxa tomorrow morning.

IrfanView, is much easier to use for basic photo croping, resizing, some other features and it's free. It's what I use. FYI.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

I know this is completely off topic what how do you propagate Blyxa? Do you just cut it like any stem plant or do you need to separate it like crypts?

Yeah, that's blyxa. It kind of took off on me. I like the bush look though. At this point, I will be pulling that bush out tomorrow and selling off at least half. I am going to start over with a new bush.

You can just pull it apart like crypts. It is pretty simple to propagate.

If the plant is slightly shaded, will it still survive?

Yeah, the plants at the bottom of the bush are alive. They have some shade. Less green but healthy otherwise.

Very easy to use! Thanks for that! Now I can change the quality back to high on my phone and then just use gimp. I am going to post more pics this afternoon.

Wow dude, thats really nice. I could never wait that long on mine. I guess it helps to have some room I hope the second round goes as good for you. This one is probably the best example that ive seen so far.
