I'm not feeling that great today, I think I'm getting sick, so changing the water wasn't pleasant work today. But I survived and did a little trimming. I did much of the trimming on Wednesday because some of the plants were already touching the surface of the water.
The Purple Bamboo really likes this tank. I'm not all sure what to do with trimming it, so I cut the stem in half and replanted the top while leaving the base. I'm not what it'll do, but I'm hoping it'll send out a new shoot.
I pulled the rest of the stargrass out. It basically melted all the way and I had no more patience for it. I'm getting tired of fishing gray pieces of dead plant out of my tank.
I trimmed the rest of the emersed growth off my E. Vesuvius and moved it to where it can be seen here soon.. Cool plant, it's sent up a handful of new leaves over the last few weeks, but still isn't rooting well. I'm hoping it'll get to rooting better here soon.
I'm more convinced that the L Cuba is really L Cuba. It's definately taken on the narrow leaves, and it's still growing like a weed. I had to trim it again. I can't wait to see how this plant responds to the pressurized co2.
And here's what anyone reading this wants to see, not my blabble
The glass is still cloudy from stirring things up. It seems like a fine film settles on the glass that takes a few days to clear up.
Once again there's a bare patch behind the driftwood. I'll suffer with it for a couple more weeks before getting more plants. I'm too broke right now
The L Glandulosa this week. The color keeps improving slowly. After all the plants are in and settled, I'm going to cut back on the KNO3 bit by bit to see if it will help the reds pop.
I just trimmed the red one. The green one was being shaded over by it. I'll probably end up pulling a couple of these when I get more plants. There seems to be too many of them.
Rotala Nanjenshan. Neat plant, I like it. I'll be trimming it again to get it bushier.
And that's all I have for now. Hope you all enjoyed!
