Yeah, the R. Colorata kind of took over. It's a super thick bush now. Also, it was supposed to be more orangish, but everything in that tank, if it can turn red, is the deepest possible red it can be.

R. Wallichi is in there, R. Bangladesh (which you can literally watch grow a few inches in an hour once it gets going) and D. Diandra. Also some H. Pinnatafolia, which I'll have to watch since it's behaved and stayed small - which means in about a week I am betting it explodes in size.

In the end there may be too much red!

you do water changes everyday for the 1st week, every other day for the 2nd week, and two times a week for the 3rd week?
