Eriocaulon Australia splitting

For a while I had green water and when I finally got rid of it, 100% water change, my erios looked a little worn out. So I just kept dosing and hoped for a good come back.

But now then I checked on it and the reason why it looks so banged up was that it was splitting. but differently than what I had once before.



my little erio forest patch in the 29 gal.



Erio not up to par





The splitting made it very ugly. No wonder it never lived to its potential. Such as my erio cinereum



What do u think? Ready to split?

I'm not a doctor in real life but I play one on this forum

It certainly looks ready to split to me. Use a razor blade to do the deed. I like to use my trusty exacto knife.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

Hardly an expert, I just know them enough to grow them fairly well.
