    A few more pics:

    N. khasiana
    075

    Different angle
    074

    N. ventricosa. I like the lighting I was able to get on this pic. More in the yellow/ redish ranges. I covered the flash with semi-transparent plasic because the flash was too bright, and this is what came out
    050

    And a group shot
    076

    New basal shoot on N. spectabilis*aristolochioides

    N. sanguinea: so hungry it's drooling

    Your maxima grew incredibly fast!!! It's good to see an update from you. If the danios breed the Utric will keep the fry in check, possibly. They may be too big for the traps.

    I've read of some Utrics as groundcover, but never thought of floating ones to put in an(my) aquarium. What's the hardness in ppm of your aquarium water?
    Nice ceph, especially the pronounced M's on their lids. First time I see a N. khasiana, and I find their pitcher rather elegant. Definitely your plants and fish are well taken care of.

    I was really surprized that soon after getting the maxima it started bolting and producing uppers. Deffinately a pleasant surprise U. gibba traps are pretty small, so I don't foresee them eating the fish fry. Then again, I don't know how big the fry are. They would have to be really small to be eaten.

    Well, my aquarium is recent enough that I'll still need to see how the U. gibba does. We'll see. I put the aquarium together at the end of December/begining of January. I've actually used Reverse osmosis water from my filter for the aquarium and then added the recomended dosage of aquarium salt (1 tablespoon/5 gallons) for the sake of the fish. I don't know that this is the best, or necessary (using R.O. filtered water). Still trying to get a feel for the best aquarium upkeep. I just didn't want to deal with all the anti-chlorine agents, etc I would need to use (?) with tap water.

    The gibba has had a bit of trouble with fish nibbling at the growing tips and some algae growth on it. I'm pretty sure I need to change out the water a bit more frequently to help avaiod that. I don't know the ppm, but I can test that and get back to you.
    Any thoughts/suggestions to a new aquarium keeper?

    I got the idea for putting gibba in there because a few years ago at a pet shop I saw some gibba in their fish tanks as a tag along plant with the typical aquatic plants.
