    Jim, I really love this all natural setup (my woods has bogs and creeks all over). Do you do water changes with fresh bog water or just top up the evaporation with R/O or let the level rose and fall with rain...?

    Also, have you noticed any critters in the water? I assume there has to be some aquatic things helping feed the plants if the water and muck comes from the bog.

    Any form of circulation like an air stone or mini pump?

    Sorry I just had to ask it all at once! LOL

    I just top off with saved bog water and rain. There are also lots of mosquito larvae in there. I don't use an airstone.

    Only reason I ask is "still water" always seems to develop a sort of slick on it in my vivariums.

    There is a small sheen on the surface. Not sure why or how it got there. Must be human activity.

    Thanks, jimscott. Is your Aldrovanda the Australian form?

    I have three different ones and the growing tips look different though the plants are grown in very similar conditions.
