life seems to have got in the way just lately.
I have had several tanks to sort out the worst being a friends planted tank which had to be moved out of one room due to their house being flooded, and then returned the next day and reset up, good excuse to re-scape it at the same time.
I have wished that I could slow down the stellata quite often I had to slim it down by nearly 30 stems a couple of weeks ago as it was nearly reaching from one end of the tank to the other what I did not realise was that where I had trimmed it to submerge it again there was flower buds developing and I thought I had killed the plant as it stopped growing for about a week whilst it developed side shoots.
the lotus is growing great guns ( might have something to do with a 22,000k tube over it )
hopefully now that every thing is sorted now ( including getting my pc to start every time ) I should be about more often.
