travis Helps if I upload the pic to the webserver Should be good now.

Buck Cant see your pic Travis but I will tell you that if its a fern it will grow rapidly.
01-07-2005 10:31 PM
travis Just took this pic from above the tank. The ferns aren't very large yet but they are in place on the right side. I've read they're slow growers, how true is that?

travis Well I just planted the Java ferns today: two bunches of standard M. pteropus, two bunches of Windelov, and a nice thick bunch of Narrow Leaf. I attached the rhizomes to chunks of lace rock so I can move them around a bit as they grow, but I've got them placed fairly close together right now. I'll post a pic tomorrow when the lights come back on. Can't wait to watch them grow. Thanks again for all the info guys

Georgiadawgger I just added some Windelov and its grows much "wider" and fuller than regular java fern. The unusual appearance of it really makes it cool looking.

Buck, you've got some huge ones there! What in the world are you feeding them? Small children?

Buck That was me that deleted it if you are wondering where that message went Thanks... I chuckled , but I dont think all would, sorry to rain on your parade

I'd say they get pretty big. I had to sell this one off because it outgrew my 40 breeder.

travis Holy . . . Just a bit of growth going on there Buck. I think that Java ferns should be just the ticket. I'll probably hold off on the C. balansae for a while though That is crazy . . .
01-01-2005 08:56 PM
Buck Well these two photos should give you an idea on how they grow, the first photo was taken on February 18 and the second photo is taken on July 7...just under 5 months.
The only thing in this tank at that time that I did not change was the Ferns and anubia's in the left side, the balansae's in the middle and the bolbitus in the right corner. The bolbitus started as 3 little bare rhyzomes to give you an idea of how that stuff grows too....
