Happy Easter Linn!

The Macranda Caterpillar is a solid grower and will turn in to a nice bush without any effort. I assume the bronze will be similar. My guess is that before long you will have more than you can use of both.

My lower dosing across the board is still going strong. I do not see me going back to my old ways.

Biggest difference is GDA. Has disappeared, and glass stays very clean with no effort. I have to say I am a big fan of that.

Time for another small update. Yet another week at 10ppm NO3 and so far nothing has screamed at me yet. Sitting here on the couch looking at the tank I have to admit the new Rotala Sri Lanka Bronze @burr740 is looking pretty good. Unfortunately I am learning that Ludwigia arcuata may not be for my tank. I like the color that the leaves are turning but it just grows too fast. The internodes on most stems are around 3/4" - and it seems to grow twice as fast as any other plant in the tank. May have to try it on the low tech tank for awhile.

Got a couple pics of the new plants from @Maryland Guppy - L. Polycarpa, if it continues changing to a more amber color will likely become a favorite plant. There is 1 stem of L. Peruensis right next to the Polycarpa - for some reason I seem to have lost the other stem that was sent. The 2 chain swords were nestled into the Lobelia Cardinalis, kinda as a continuation of the Dwarf Sag that is behind the Cardinalis. For now I have the R. Nanjenshan nestled in front of the Rugosa until I get a better idea how it develops in my tank.

One think I have noticed with the Rotala Rotundifolia is the stems seem to be turning more of an olive green instead of the usual lime green. Not sure what it means, but the leaves sure do look a healthy lime green from tip to substrate. Anyway, enough rambling :-)

Glad that plants arrived well!
Polycarpa can have 3 colors to a stem.
Lower greens, midrange orange, and deep red tops.

Cavan sent me one 2' emersed stem of this a few years ago.
Placed it horizontally right up front glass with two air line suction cups.
The nice thing about this species is when water parameters change the tops don't stunt like the pogo species.
Extra runners/suckers appear along the entire stem.

Tank looks good Linn!!!

Atlantis Update:
After trim #3 and the crap is tossed it is very much an "orange" stem @ this point.
Very unlike the rubin I am growing that has red tops.
The new emersed "orange" has transitioned well but still waiting on a verdict.

Well this has been fun so far! The bad - luggage got left at Chicago when we left for Seattle yesterday. The good, we finally got our luggage early this evening.
The really good - met many familiar names I was hoping to see, and got to meet a lot more really great people.
Cheryl Rogers, AGA President. One of the first I spoke with and was extremely helpful given our rough start.
Roy ( @Seattle_Aquarist ) - chatted for awhile - hoping to talk more tomorrow
Vin ( @Saxa Tilly ) - short conversation today, hopefully more tomorrow as well after his presentation.
Dennis Wong - talked for a bit and even discussed my tank for a bit. Looking forward to his presentation tomorrow.
Deb with registration was also a lot of fun to talk to today.

Ended up spending the afternoon at the Seattle Center with the wife. Went to a few of the attractions including the Space Needle and the Chihuly Garden & Glass.
Some pics from today. First 2 are Karen Randall's little tank.

Still not sure why most of the pics are rotated, but oh well - you get the idea anyway :-)
Absolutely amazing presentations by Cara Wade and Vin Kutty this morning! Got to spend a bit of additional time picking their brains on many topics. Even had a nice discussion with Karen Randall and Cara regarding Bearded Dragons (the wife was really more involved than I was).
Sounds like AGA video taped both presentations and should have them up on the AGA site at some point.

Looking forward to this afternoons presentations by Christal Kasselmann and Dennis Wong!

If those look anything like that picture, it's on my must try list.

Looking forward to seeing them in your tank.

Decent bunch of Rotala Wallichii for $6 - wonder how long this will last in her tank? :-)
