Wow, after searching pics of A. senegalensis, I am debating the ID of my Nesea crassicaulis now. The same pics on both pages....ugh....I hate stem plant IDs. I guess ill trust APCs page over any of them. Or I could ask Cavan to ID it for me. Hes real good.

Haha, stem plants can be a pain..

Don't quote me on this, but I believe Nesea crassicaulis has broader leaves than Ammania Senegalensis.

Edit: Longer, not broader. lol

Thanks fellas. Brandon, this has been a step tank. After overcoming the algae battle i bumped up the lights and Co2 until I hit a 12 hour photo period and followed suit with the ferts. Now I dose macros every other day and micros everyday.

So are you doing the normal EI amounts for a tank this size just micros daily or an amount you have devised?

The Ammania gracilius I got was indeed Nesea crassicaulis. Nicer rarer plant, nice color to it, sort of like the Nesaea "red", but this plant actually grows submersed well and retains nice color.

Still on the look out for Ammania, a local has some in a green house emergent.
Speaking of which.........I best bug him.

I dose my own modified version of PPS-Pro. I use normal Macros and ramped up Micros. I add a little extra DTPA Fe and mix Millers with CSM+B equally, and add a little MnSO4.

I have found multiple sources for this plant but have never trusted the ID enough for the $$. I wish you the very best of luck finding it and getting it back to us

Whoa, workin the midnight shift. Ok, I finally got a few things organized. Here are a few shots of failures and successes

Here is the 29g Nurii tank. The C. nurii 'Phang mutated' are finally starting to recover from a bad bout with BBA and Excel. We all know crypts dont so well with Excel and these were no exception. I also have a DHG 'Belem' carpet which keeps popping up clado mats so it needs trimmed everytime it looks cool. For the backgroud I have C. balansae 'Red' and a couple of Fissidens "on wood". One is regular fontanus and the other in the back is 'Mini'. It has a breed of 'Super yellow' shrimp, CPDs, a couple ottos, and a couple farrowellas. This tank is a success and a failure...




Here is the stem tank that ive been posting. Its also a 29g. Here is a FTS to show tonights state. I have a bunch of new stems in the foreground waiting to grow a bit. The grand design of success and failure. The rest is just collectoritus..



And here is the final entry. Ill show a bit more detail on this one. This WAS my Crypt keei tank. When i first bought keeis I got 2. They grew good so I bought a bunch more. They grew good. Then I added them to this tank with brand new AS. Now I, ironically, have 2 Success? It had some Java fern, Mini bolbitus, HM, Persicaria, Murdania, 'Nana' Petites. skinny vals, C. balansae, MQ carpet, and a couple mosses in it...



The center...



Mini Bolbitus. SUPER slow grower. CT gave me this a year ago.I tied it on upside down. Failure ...



The Right side floaters...



The left side floaters...



And a FTS, with the black mollies...

I went too the last one, it was a pretty good time. Some really slow and boring parts and the usual "let's bid at the very last second" and then not do anything else...

Do you have a tank where you would be able too grow out the pleco's? (just mean so they don't get harassed by larger fish not sure if you have any larger fish) I'm sure by the auction I should have a dozen or so an inch+ I can bring you that way you won't have too wait till it warms up or whatever.

Yeah, ive got a few shrimp tanks that need them that dont have any other fish other than ottos. It would be nice to have the advance notice too so I can kill the Co2 so it easier to acclimate them. Are they in Co2 now?
