What is the third plant down? I love the red stem and feathery green foliage.

Are you thinking of the Myrio Red (Myriophyllum heterophyllum)?

First picture is ambulia, second is the myrio red stem and third is ludwigia broadleaf.

The myrio red is a super fast grower, an inch a day in my tank, and needs weekly topping and replanting. But I agree with you, it's a beauty and easy to manage despite the frequent trimming and I love it!

Geezo, your right. It is the second picture.
Yes, thats the plant. You think it would do okay without Co2?

Haha I thought it might be the second one! I honestly have no idea how it would grow with no CO2 as I have never tried. I originally got some trimmings from @Greggz so this plant.

Here are a few more shots. I had been growing out some java fern in my blackwater tank. Today I took out all the little plants and brought them to the high tech tank. I hope to see them take off and do well here. Used super glue to fix them to the small driftwood.

The monte carlo was quite frustrating to me to replant, so I didn't replant a whole ton of it. Part of me wants to move on and try something new, but I'll leave it for right now.

Happy fathers day to all the dads out there!

Wow, lots of mass and little maintnance...

Pretty big trim, some BBA, but enjoying summertime.

Have been running 150ish PAR, but will bump down to one fixture for a while. Just no need for all the power right now!
