Thanks for the heads up. I found some at the Lowes here I'll let you know if I have any luck. I was thinking of trying to grow it a couple different ways and see what works. Any update on yours?

Wow very nice office, to hell with the bland cubical!!!
Your wondering jew is the most purple-est I've ever seen!! Is it because of variant/sub species, nutrients, or your camera? Your fern on the far left looks like it needs a little love :c

I think it is the breed - came that way (from Lowes I think, maybe home Depot) and I have seen much greener ones too. My favorite (which I have seen but don't have one) are really purple and really twisted, dense leaves - very cool. Should have snatched it up the first time I saw it.

The fern is a little sad - but I really like it and would love any tips. It is a rabbit's foot fern - the rhizomes are healthy and plentiful, the leaves are sad (as you can see)

Not that I know the particular plant but many ferns require high humidity.
The fern mentioned in #80

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

By the way, I forgot to tell you. I did find some of this plant at Lowe's, but I never put it in the HOB. Mine is by a window and the leaves are more pointy/sharp looking. When I get the 20 gallon tall set up, I'll put some in the riparium planters. Thanks for confirming they will adapt

I love this idea and I'm stealing it for 4 filters on my 3 tanks with clip on lights. I know I want different plants in each one and know all the plants I want to grow in the filter. However I am having trouble coming up with more than just Monte Carlo on the spill away mesh. I want to put Staurogyne Repens in my penguin 100B and Anubias nana in my penguin 150B, both are on my 40g breeder. I also what to put a Java Furn in my quietflow thats on my 15g. My 38g has a AquaClear 50, but because of the way the light is on it I can only do the spillway. I intend to use my Monte Carlo on the 38g but I'm at a loss for the other 3 spillaways.

EDIT: I just noticed your automatic top off, vary cool.

real fast - it's basically emerged so it grows like a weed.

Your thread has inspired me to attach a marina breeder box to a mr. Aqua 3G.



It's a work in progress.
