crazydaz Uhh.....what's going on with this tank now, Xue? What of the greenhouse??? Pictures or update would be awesome!!!

looking4roselines These plants are all submerged. Photos were taken when the water was drained during a water change.

Frank,
Most (if not all) people would agree that you'll grow healthier plants with CO2, not just crypts. C bullosas are usually found in fast flowing streams. Having good water flow or currents in your tank also help distribute/diffuse the CO2 evenly. There are vitrually no dead or stagnant spots in my tank. I have two eheim canisters and two needlewheel pumps for the CO2 diffusion and I can see tiny CO2 bubbles in every corner of my tank. Even though I do not fertilize my tank, the plants do get nutrient from the water column from fish waste. I have a group of cardinals that are fed daily.

DogFish Xue, I wonder if CO2 is the answer for C. Bullosa. It seems to be a commonality with people having success with this crypt.

What do you think?

jkan0228 Are those bullosa Bario's all submersed grown?

looking4roselines Thanks guys. Crypts are the least demanding plants I grew and they are thriving with very little to no attention given. Water change is often neglected also.

crazydaz That's beautiful, Xue!! What excellent coloration!! Just amazing!

looking4roselines I did a water change tonight and snapped pics of the two newest crypts added to my collection. C bullosa Bario and C yujii Sungei Nibong. This bullosa variant is the reddest bullosa next to the form collected from Sarakei.







C yujii is also a very interesting broad leaf crypt with brown veining throughout the leaf. Yujii is the first crypt i've seen with this type of veining



This bullosa patch was started with just a couple of mother plants. A nice dense patch is starting to form. They are grown in liquid rock with no fert. Just injected co2.

Sounds outstanding, looking forward to seeing that .

crazydaz That'll be great.....if they don't get covered in algae from the transition! Will this be in your new greenhouse, then?

crazydaz Uhhh....where are they going??? What are putting in there instead?? Most importantly: what are you thinking???
06-23-2012 01:08 AM
looking4roselines Haha nah. I actually wanted to post pics of my aglaonema but realized it should be in the other thread

Probably won't have the opportunity bloom affinis in this tank again though. I'm going to remove them all in the next few weeks
