Lots of rain here today, so I found the time to rip up a lot of the plants and clean things up. I must have tossed about a gallon or more of plant mass this time around.

Pretty happy with things overall. The helenthium tenellum is coming in nicely.

I have been pretty on top of water changes this summer so far, not missing any. Filters are ever few weeks I do one.

Still seeing a little GDA at the end of the week, but nothing horrible.

The crypt tiger is great, just the old leaves get hit with algae hard.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Wouldn't it be cool if the leopard val stayed this small? It is so red and beautiful!

The barclaya longifolia is absolutely huge. @Greggz no joke on this one taking odd after it acclimated. Two bulbs took, and you must have sent them 8 or 9 months ago. Absolutely love this plant!

Just a few shots to share!

That Leopard Val looks cool. Might have to get some time.

And yes, that Barclaya can sit for months, then all of the sudden it spurts to life.

I have some of that same batch that were nothing but bare bulbs for awhile and are starting to get going again.

Looks great in your tank, that is for sure.

When I need to thin them out I'll send some tour way. Amazing color and unique pattern on them.

I generally trim off the largest / oldest leaves until it looks right

Knock on wood, I have not pulled a single leaf off the plant in months. Something is clicking these days.

In other news she's getting ready to flower too!
