Looking great Amy! That Hygrophila balsamica looks right at home in there. Now the fun part - keeping it trimmed :-)
Not sure how fast those Lobelia Cardinalis are going to grow in your tank, but if they pick up any speed like in my high tech tank you will be giving away the excess in a few months :-)
The plant in the front left is some version of Alternanthera Reineckii. Interesting little plant as it really does not like my high tech tank, but seemed to be very happy in my 20g low tech tank.
Will have to see if I can get any pics of the new shrimp on my end one of these days
also, like your light - have 2 of those over the 20g low tech tank. Really like the bluetooth app that goes with them.
Yes! I can see those H balsamica branches starting to spread out wider and wider- lol! How do I propogate this plant? Do I take off these branches and place them in substrate? Would they, then, grow roots?
I hope the L. Cardinalis do increase, would love to put some in my other tanks. Such an interesting plant. Different than what I have.
Oh, thats right-- A . Reineckii. It has lost some color since you sent it too me, sadly. Its still very pretty, though. I dont have a really high fertilization routine, maybe thats why it isnt so vibrant. I have been fertilizing my shrimp tanks with the Thrive specific to tanks with shrimp. Maybe I should add some Seachem root tabs around it. That might help.
This Fluvel nano light Ive only had for a few weeks now, but Im really liking it. Especially the colors. It makes the plants, shrimp, etc... look very nice.
