    @cain: CO2 diffuser, 2 gatorade bottles, check valves, CO2 resistant tubing, sugar and yeast....pretty much it.

    What? You don't like decorative colored rocks? LOL.

    Just kidding. The u. graminifolia really makes this display stand out. I don't know much about utricularia. Never really had an interest in them. Does they normally grow at this depth? Do the flowers make it above the water line?

    Dash: they can provided they have enough gas for respiration (CO2)....they used to make flowers underwater during the transition to submersed growth, but have stopped doing so since then...so for now, it just makes an attractive lawn....

    Very nice mat of UG you have there. Looks great.

    Do you have any problems keeping it planted? Thats always been an issue for me submerged.

    @rss: actually no--i think the reason is because i grew it for a long time emmersed. it had plenty of time to establish itself in the soil. i took that pic because the UG is actually due for a trim! going to propagate new UG from the cuttings soon....as you can tell, you cant even see the rocks from the original tank anymore!

    i hear if you continuously cut it down, it prevents the UG from growing to high and dislodging itself from the substrate.

    And just HOW do you mow an underwater lawn?
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
