Just because I'm a dork

I know this is silly of me, but I'm excited! My anubias bloomed today!!! I've had this plant for a good 2 years and this is the first bloom. I guess excel does really help.

Eheim 2217 & 2236, 2-39wt T5 bulbs (10,000), 72-75*
Pristella tetras, cardinal tetra, amano shirmp, bamboo shrimp, nerite snails, assassin snails and red cherry shrimp.

Now I have a new goal

I never had either. I didn't know what was going on until I googled it. Sorry for the bad cell pic. It's facing up toward the light so I got really bad glare without the flash on. This plant has doubled in size since adding excel daily.

When they get old enough they bloom quite regularly. I had three blooms at once last month from my two 12" rhizomes.

Mine bloomed today too. Second time the same plant bloomed in 6 months. I've got its twin in a different tank, and it's never flowered. Wonder what the difference is..

I'm curious to see if it actually opens up into a flower as well.

Haven't had a chance to look in my tank for a few days, but I got home today and look:



Is that what I think it is?

How do I get it to open up?

I agree. I was excited about my first bloom, and now it is very common. I guess the plant just takes time to become happy
