ConcaveLiNkiN An update on my Egeria densa. After weeks, it seems to be growing pretty okay with no signs of dying. Yesterday I did a quick relocation, I moved all my densa to a spot under my driftwood:


after a couple of minutes, guess what happened:

Yes! It started to pearl! Nice, I believe the new location provided my densa with sufficient lighting, thus causing more photosynthesis and in turn it started to pearl.

2 cells thick? I tried googling on the plant, not very helpful though. Never really mention the problems people come into when caring for them. So I suppose this could be normal?

Ah... Warm water. The temp of my water is normally 29C to 27C. I am using quadfans and do not have a chiller.

I see. Mine's a newly planted tank:
Lights: 2sets of 2x24W
Liquid fert: ADA Brighty K
Substrate: ADA Amazonia
CO2: 2bps
Lights duration: 8hrs in the evening and 3hrs morning

The stem looks really healthy and green though and I could see new shoots coming out from the stem. Therefore, I presume that the slight melting on the leaves are normal, showing a sight to actually get use to the environment?

Thanks everyone for the feedback.

micheljq Looks healthy to me. Leaves can be somewhat transparent on Egeria densa.

It seems like the leaves are turning transparent. But the stems look really green. Is that normal?
