Happy Easter and Good Evening All!
Trimmed a whole lot yesterday eve, doesn't show it but I did.
Little algae here and there but no BBA except for PVC high flow areas.
Came home with more plants from LFS yesterday! Not like I needed any but?
Luwigia orange that will most likely look like atlantis. Testing the look of the ludwigia's @ the moment.
Macrandra that looked good @ LFS, rare for this to look good from there.
Way pink right now hope it shows more red soon.
And a bulb of barclaya with 1-1" leaf that cost me $7.99, felt very robbed.
Somehow they managed to have the last 20 or so bulbs of this available from anywhere, hard to come by these days.
Speaking of bulbs, wish I never parted with all of the red tiger lotus.
Should have kept some for future use in the 75G.
I just had to stop in, their FB page said plants arrived from 3 separate vendors on Friday so Saturday morn was my only chance to get anything.
They sell out very quick and are sent home with just Flourish Comp, poor plants!
Talked to the owner about Deep Blue tanks that are supposed out of business.
I really want that 8 sq.ft. footprint for plants that frag tanks provide.
Could be out of luck, not sure yet.
100 gallon long 6' tanks are a thing of the past and buying them used means they are very old.
here is a pic of the arcuata.
It is a messy plant, many branches near the surface and many roots from nodes.
Some brevipes are in the pick too to show the broader leaf pattern.
here is the atlantis that has been trimmed twice.
Wondering if many species get so labeled due to the light provided???
Many ludwigia can be "turned off" in a say 45PAR environment, I've done this many time returning plants to the 75G tank.
Some pics from the top with pump shut off.
Instead of a full tank shot I opted for two 1/2 tank shots.
Even when trimmed the density is off the hook!
It makes me happy though, all this extreme growing.
Albeit not extremely difficult plants but I will graduate some day.
Still playing the KH/Soft Water game @ a slow pace to KH reduction.
Until Another Day, Night All:
