It's nothing special right now, as I haven't trimmed it this week.
Here's a quick cellphone pic, with gross color rendering, of course:
Will trim and update this weekend.
Nope, nothing where the UG popped up. First appeared beneath the acrylic of the lamp and then started spreading.It's now sending out runners like crazy and is growing on the side of the tank and on the surface of the water.
My favorite mat of UG ever was on the side of a breeder net. For some reason, it spread like wildfire and really seemed to enjoy taking root on that fine mesh.
This tank remains one of my favorites. Have to do weekly S. repens trims (and have it for sale, currently) and can't even begin to tell you how frequently I have to trim the Bacopa. It's a hot mess.
Have tried to culture some green algae on the rocks but only a tiny bit remains. Every time I get a bunch going, the Ramshorns and Yellow Shrimp (yep, they eat it occasionally) clean it all up. Have even tried to culture algae on the sides of the tank to see if I could deter them from nomming the rocks clean but no dice - they eat both.
A couple quick cell phone shots:
There's a ton of UG growing from the spray bar. Suppose I should remove it at some point.
Finally think I'll have time in a couple weeks to order more Boraras brigittae and Otos from Rachel. Excitement!
I like the UG caught up in the light at the surface, it looks good. I have some Riccia that attached to my driftwood right at the surface and it's very hard to pull off, strange for a plant that you have to tie to everything.
This tank looks nice and it's a shame the V. nana never made it into the tank.
Still looking good man - love your tank. Do you currently have no fish post heater incident? I love the look of the chili rasboras - I will be getting some as well. You reccommend them so much and when I have seen them in person they seem more active than CPDs.
I am still trying to think of a second plant species to put in a back corner of my Ebi....thoughts on that?
