BruceF Your errors are better than most of out successes.

What the heck is' lucens'? I am looking for a crypt that is between parva and nuri in stature and I can't figure out this lutea, lucens, willisi stuff at all.

wabisabi Thanks!

Some of the buces did well considering they were hardly getting any light and nutrients. Some not so good, almost completely withering away (those that got very little light). The anubias is 'coin leaf'. That seems to grow relatively quickly compared to some buces. and the crypt parva is actually Crypt lucens? I started with about 4 plants and that is what has grown in probably over a year. So the lesson here is don't starve your plants of light, nutrients, and water changes! I'm just happy that they didn't all die!

Kai808 Congrats on the spathes! You got a lot of slow growers in this tank... How much growth did you see in the buces, anubias nana petite, and cryptocoryne parva within the last 6 months?

wabisabi Haven't updated in a while. The 90P has been neglected for about 6 months (no water changes, just top offs). Was completely overgrown with emerged Ludwigia 'Curly' and NLJF. Just cleaned it up a bit so decided to take a few pics while I had the camera out.

and some crypts that bloomed recently

It seems to help keep fungus growth to a minimum.

wabisabi yes, growing in co2 injected tank. I've had the Lagenandra for about 6 to 8 months (i don't remember exactly), but the cutting I got was large already so I think it grew relatively quickly.

h4n I'm scared to move it.
When I got it it had two leaves dropped into my tanks they alk nelted right away and just started growing its 3rd leaf.
Is your in a co2 tank?

I see how long did it take to grow those bushes?

I mounted mine on 3 2x2 mesh and they are just about all filled in enough I can crop them to make more.

wabisabi Thanks. Give your 'pink' some room and it'll grow huge.

The red moss was just mounted on some stainless mesh that I set on some driftwood and it just grew over it.

How's yours doing?
08-22-2013 10:18 AM
h4n Very nice 'Pink' ! mines tiny still lol!

What do you have your red moss mounted on?
08-22-2013 09:22 AM
wabisabi Haven't posted in a while, just thought I'd share some pics.....

Who needs Crypt 'flamingo' when you have Lagenandra meeboldii 'Pink'!

Some Caloglossa cf. beccarii (aka Red Moss)
