Otto's maybe? I don't really know. Every once in a while they get some green spot, but it's very minimal.

An update from 12/26:



the micrantheoides has really taken off. I've already trimmed the b. australis (I believe that's what it is on the right by the crypts) and the parrot's feather. The stellata is just starting to grow as is the a. gracilis.

Anyone know how quickly e. triandra grows? Is it a very slow grower? I've noticed some new growth, but not a lot.

VITARTE Lynn,
If there's any L.Cuba leftovers after Mike ( It's been 2 years. He might've given up on that plant ) I'll be happy to take them from you.
Thanks,
Rafo

fresh_lynny George looks great!

Mike, I throw away a lot of L cuba because mine grows too tall too fast...you are welcome to some.

Where I'm at now



Here's a pic of where my tank stands right now. I'm on an effort to return it to it's former glory.

clubs?

I was admiring George's tank - what a beauty! I am brand new to this site and have only become re-interested in tropical fish. Are there meetings in my location (Huntington, NY) to speak with other folks like George (who seems to be doing what I am trying to do with my tank)?

Mike

Also, does anyone in my area (Huntington) know where I can get any of those Ender's livebearers? (females included)

Wow!

Just a quick note to say that this is just gorgeous, George. I just came across your pics on the forum and I'm blown away! Something for this newbie to aspire to!

Thanks for the tips Jay. Hopefully it will take off for me.

This plant was extremely comfortable in my tank and it was growing so fast, I was basically pruning it every other day = too much hacking.

jerseyjay George,

L. cuba is extremely easy plant once its established. It went trough "down" phase twice in my tank. I had it about 2 years ago and was supplying people from Aquabid on daily basis. I took orders in advance and learned quickly that "too much" hacking is counterproductive with this plant. Let it grow, avoid massive pruning and you will have plenty for Mike in no time

George Willms Hey Jay....yeah that is your L. cuba on the left. It didn't like all the shade from the before pictures. There are a few side shoots, so I'm hoping to get some growth out of it soon, now that I've hacked back the jungle.
