FAIR WARNING!

Plants need to be imported legally.

Failure to follow proper procedures and protocol have serious legal ramifications.

My suggestion is that if the intention is to circumvent the legal mechanisms put in place with regards to the importation of aquatic plants the conversation on both the public section of the forum and PMs about illegal activities cease.

If the conversation about such activities continues, this thread will be locked and removed from the public.

His location says somewhere over the rainbow... Vasteq is from Poland.

EDIT: Sorry thought you were talking about Vasteq, didn't see the other post.

Since the Bucephas are slow growers, how do you discourage the growth of algae like BBA. Can you dose Excel on them?

Excellent question.. I have been wondering the same thing. Excel loves to unexpectedly melt certain plants. I hope Buce is not one of them..

I have been dosing Metricide Plus 30 at 1 ml per day in my mini-m for a week no. My two plants seem fine.

They root easily but slowly from rhizome cuttings for me. I glue the cuttings onto small stones.

They seem like hardy plants, but are slow. I am having a problem with diatoms in my tank and have to use a paintbrush to clean the rhizomes, and I have to rub the diatoms off gently with my fingers every now and then.

It's a new tank. Though. I have had the plants for about two months and they have multiplied and made six new buds that wil become plants (between my cutting I made from each, and on their own.)

Last warning. If anyone in this thread links to or discusses the sale of this plant illegally, they will loose privileges to this forum and this otherwise valuable thread will be locked.

Go the low tech route. It's wonderful to have moss, anubias grow without algae growing in and on them.
