That's pretty cool, and that plant is huge . I'll be looking forward to pictures of it flowering.

Sorry a little off topic, those are some beautiful angelfish. Are they platinum pearlscale angels or something else?

That is so beautiful! Now that I've changed my lights my crinim has started to grow better. Would love it to look like yours, however I do have a glass cover so I guess I won't get a bloom like that. Really lovely plant

i dont think so. i have had the plant for 1 1/2 to 2 yrs now so the age may have something to do with it. i do not do alot of water changes (hides from every one so they dont shoot me) and the substrate is miracle grow organic potting mix topped with pool filter sand. i do not use any kind of ferts. the only thing that might have helped it is gets a TON of light. i have the tank on a bar so its open on both front and back and one end. only the end with the filter is close to a wall. and the light gets left on for days and can be off for days as well.

here are a couple more pics of the plant
