Rotala macrandra green beside R. macrandra mini type 4. Used to skip the green macrandra because I thought it was just another green plant, but the subtle orange hues contrast well with the other red plants.

Hygrophila sp. Chai ; a mutation of Hygrophila araguaia; same pink tone as Crypt flamingo, but very slow growing. I think that the TC may not survive in most hobbyist tanks, so I wondering if it ever will become widespread commercially.

No idea hmm.... I'm not that familiar with Bucep varietals to the point of recognizing less well known species...

Hi Dennis,

I see in your fert, there is 0.4ppm Mg and no Ca at all.
Don't you think is a bit low?
What's your thought for this? Is it ok for those who use 100% r/o?
Thanks!

Hey man, Dennis will answer I am sure but you can't have Ca in an all in one fert because Ca will combine with phosphate and then precipitate out.

You need to seek your Ca from the GH booster. Barr GH booster is 3:1:1 gypsum, epsom salts, K2SO4.

I knew that just fe will combine with phosphate, didn't know for ca too.
I don't use gh booster because they also contain K and Fe, I'm just curious of his thought about particularly 0.4ppm mg.

The reason you dont see Ca in all-in-ones is because it takes so much there are dissolution issues

Thanks Burr for answering the questions. Haven't posted in awhile cos had issues uploading pics to the site.
Cryptocoryne flamingo growing large by now.


Pruned Hygrophila sp. Chai once. Lost a sample to shading, but the remaining is growing well. I think it does better with richer water column

Trying out new stem; Myriophyllum 'guyana'. I think its my new favourite - easy to grow, easy to trim, not super fast growing, dense.

AKA Mini Myrio, yeah that's a good one, and you've made great use of it!

It does NOT tolerate high Fe/micros well...at all. Ive killed bushes that size down to a single nub or two, more than a couple of times. Reduce micros way down it comes roaring right back.
