    hrm...just a word of caution---the petiolaris dews like it very hot, much hotter than most pygmies will like (they would be put into dormancy) and i can see the D. prolifera putting up a fit as well. i would recommend moving the petiolaris into another tank, or in a tank in this space that can be heated up higher than the rest of the tank.

    i've also given up on putting cephs and helis together....their conditions conflict to much and my ceph is suffering from it.

    that being said, that which might not work for me, might work for you. good luck! looking forward to seeing your progress.

    How much did it cost you to build the rack (if you don't mind me asking )?

    I'm getting really frustrated by my D. prolifera that wants to keep blooming. I wish it would understand that we're growing them for their LEAVES, not their FLOWERS.

    I don't think I've ever seen a mature and settled D. prolifera that wasn't flowering. As far as I know, it's the primary way they multiply, so I'm pretty sure all of them do it perpetually, at least once they're happy. It most certainly doesn't seem to be detrimental to the plant like it can be to other species, not in my experience. So I say sit back and let it flower - as monkey and I do - they're pretty for so small, and it only gives you more plants. ^.^
