The EdTheEdge 25 - Updated 12/27/2008 - 56K...

Everything... I mean everything was corvered with BGA last week. I finally resorted to Maracyn. The BGA was gone in 2 days and hasn't come back.

The tank is so green right now I had to snap a quick couple of pics.

It's a steady grower for me.... I love it and it responds really well to pruning.

Great job on the plant. I have never seen anubius before this forum. You really showcase its true beauty.

1 pot. . .8 years. That's about 7 years and 364 days longer of an attention span than I have to do that!

Is that all one rhizome? or have you split it up over the years? 'Cause that is amazing either way.

Thanks. It has been split literally hundreds of times. Pieces of it have found their way into all my tanks. And I've given away huge mats of it numerous times.

LOL! It wasn't that difficult. It's just growning around some pertified wood. I stuck the ends of several rhizomes into the substrate and pointed the Anubias straight up. It took about 6 months to cover the wood and I've been pruning it ever since. It would fill my tank up in a year if I didn't keep it in check.

That is one killer piece of anubius. It look amazing in your tank.
