I got a couple out. I had to do a major trim of wisteria first. I cut out about 15 wisteria plantlets and that gave me room to get a net in there to catch them. Don't get me wrong it is still a jungle, it was a tiny net.

The right one has lugwigia repens, wisteria, duckweed, salavinia, and blyxa. Its going to need a redo soon.

The left bowl on the other hand is doing great.

When I redo the right bowl it will be the second time since I first set them up. I havent redone the left one at all. The only thing I can figure is the air duct vent blows right on the right bowl and the left bowl is protected from it by the bookshelf and the right bowl.

kamikazi Snapped a few pictures this morning before I left the house because I notice both the ludwigia and the Alternanthera were blooming, my first aquatic plant blooms! yes, they on emergent growth but I don't care.



Also these bowls are now home to about 10 kribensis fry. Just an experiment to see what would happen. They are still alive and been in there a week now. No heater, no filter they seem to like it, cruising around munching on all the yumminess in there.
