    I like the plants creeping over the rocks in the back and a few popping there heads out in the cracks. Hopefully you will keep that aspect.

    Thanks RSS. Plants will continue to grow off and on the rocks. Just waiting for the plants to start running on full steam and fill the aquarium out. My A. reineckii isn't doing so well... Reading up on it, apparently it needs more N than I have currently given it. Started increasing my N dosage-- we shall see what happens. Hopefully I can get the buces to grow faster and we can do some swapping. Would like to make a Ariod tank in the future.

    you'd be surprised. I have a sp. velvet 1 that I nearly lost. when I first introduced it to this tank, it had reduced itself to a rhizome with two pathetic nubs are leaves (9/17).
    here it is now:

    then again, when comparing with heliamphora, everything else seems to grow faster...

    i guess this is an excuse to share the other buces in the tank :

    Bucephalandra sp. “Sintang”

    Bucephalandra sp. Sokan “shine blue”

    Bucephalandra sp. Kir Royale “Royal Blue”

    Bucephalandra sp. “Brownie Ghost”


    and have no idea how this one got in the tank. not complaining though!

    moved a few things around, added a few more things...



    how the tank stands today:



    stumbled upon for the first time: the undersides of H. pinnatifida. metallic pink!



    not sure on the exact id on this one... best guess is Rotala macrandra, but cant settle on the variant. any guesses?



    as always, thanks for taking a look!

    Really nice tank. Love the Bucephalandra. Don't have any yet, but love looking at them.
