Go big, or go home--Madagascar Lace

1109 7
How's this for a madagascar lace? The big leaf at top of the tank is 30 inches long by 6 inches wide. The rest are between 12 and 25 inches and still growing. To give you perspective, the tank measures 37L X 18W X 21.5H.

Can't wait for mine to get that big. I hear though that there are two different species out there, and that one of them stays smaller. You have any experience with that? I also love that lillie you have, what species is it?
I don't know if there is more than one species. I'm still learning.

The red plant is a Red Tiger Lotus (Nymphaeaceae)

Hm, I'm surprised that all the leaves on your plant look the same green color.
Yes, they are all close in color except the new leaves (as you would expect) which start out a very light green.

I use pressurized CO2, Eco-complete for substrate and I fertilized it just once in three months with a root tab. My water is within normal parameters.
