    I've had a low maintenance tank for a little over two years, and find I have a consistent issue with a tiger lotus. I have a tiger lotus, and after the pads reach the surface, they immediately start drying out until they are so beaten up that I clip them free. I've taken care of lotus in open...

    Hello all, My apologies if this topic has already been covered but I have done some research and come up empty. I JUST received my first green tiger lotus from Buceplant.com in the mail today and I'm pretty confused. My dwarf lily came attached to a bulb and is doing very well so I figured I...

    I have been having issues with my Nymphaea zenkeri waterlily recently. It lost the majority of its older leaves (they just sort of melted away over time) to what I assume was too low pH (5.5). Also, light was less than perfect (approx 50 par; dirt tank). Yesterday, I saw it floating at the...

My Tiger Lotuses and Amazon Swords are really looking amazing and growing fast, despite only having moderate lighting and around 20-25 ppm co2. My question is, how often should I replace the root tabs? Secondly, as...

    Ok so I've had two lotuses for about 8 months. When I just got them they grew like crazy and made huge leaves and sent out runners all over the place. For the past month they seem to be struggling. New growth is coming in shriveled and leaves are tiny (and a lot redder than the old leaves and...

    Is Nymphaea zenkeri 'Red' (Red Tiger Lotus) too big for a 10 gallon? I am thinking of making this a centerpiece plant for my new 10 gallon betta tank but it seems that it can get huge! Other plants will include crypts, anubias, bacopa carolina, and maybe some water sprite since it seems to find...

    My tiger lotus has one leaf that has I tiny stream of extremely fine bubbles(finer than those coming off my c02 diffuser)coming off of it. I would assume its I oxygen being released but I have never seen this before have you???

    So I've had this tank running for about 1 month now and it's not really going as well as I had thought. I knew I would have some problems here and there and so I'm very understanding that things can happen, but I don't know of a solution at this point. You can find my tank journal here I have...

    Sorry for 2 posts in this thread, but I'd like an opinion from those with a trained eye, or a good opinion. :proud: So below I will be posting a picture of my current tank. I put this together Wed night and am going to my LFS in the morning to get the rest of my order. Currently I have a...
