What rotala species is that? R. Rotundifolia? I noticed mine has rounder leaves whereas R. Colorata has longer slender ones.

Yeah, its round but I had some stems that were long. Not quite sure how to recreate the look.

I should rename my tank, the cherry shrimp love shack. I haven't been trimming because they swarm on your arms.

^ Glosso growing on top of HC Cuba growing on top of itself, - INCEPTION! - we must go deeper.

3 Weeks ago, forgot to upload. This is my best attempt at a "ball of rotala".


=======
Behold, the Rotala Rotundifolia that doesn't look like a Rotala. What did I buy?

Why is my Rotala so fat?
=======
All good things, must come to an end.

Baby got back.....

^ A couple more weeks and I can catch these guys with a net, then it's free shrimp for all!

Oh and good news, she pass the test! Got my 5lb refilled today, it had a nice layer of frost on it.


Those JBJ bubble counters are a hassle, which is even worse when I have knock offs of a bad design. One of the counter is leaking and I temporary fix the problem with extra teflon tape. It might need new o-rings in the top and bottom pieces. It looks great, just doesn't perform at all.

Pictures update, plus I randomly press down on some keys but nobody reads that.

After googling some nikon and canon DSR cameras, I decided not to go that route. Here a bunch of iphone 4 shots.

I'm not racist, but white roots are more healthy.

=======
Glosso is mixing really well with the HC Cuba. I like the way it creeps and I like the ease of pulling it up. Notice the seamless way it grows with the HC. It's root system is not as tangle as DHG, you can pull it up without taking any neighbouring plants. Notice how white the root of the Glosso plant is, that a healthy root system. I disregard any roots that are browning, you get faster growth with healthy plants.

Alternanthera Reineckii 'Pink' Roseafolia was removed for replanting. The bottom leafs were growing against the tank, it had a funny look to it.

Blyxa Japonica is growing really well after I removed the bapcoa. There is a nice bronze tint to the Blyxa leafs that are directly under the light while the lower leafs are green.

I don't think I should of went with AquaSoil, I can't really see myself rescaping with the mud. I would have to either remove the crushed balls of dirt or recap with a new layer. I can't imagine how they rescape with powersand and AquaSoil.

I'll try to find out the cost to ship, if it's cheap, you will get more than rotala trimmings.

There going to be a nice surprise in a few days,

Here a shot of Glosso's snow white roots. I advise against Glosso mixing with HC Cuba. It's near impossible to trim around Glosso and it blocks out the light for the HC. I'm trying to concentrate the growth in a line around the rocks, so far it's not that great of an effect.
