Not much change.




Flower stem I think running in front of black cord and behind canister filter outlets.



Tip is just in front of cord going into water. Bit hard to make out. I'm hoping in the next few days to get it through the gap in covers and get better photo.

That is one long flower stem. From which plant did you say again?

Delapool's 150 gallon tank

It's from Aponogeton Crispus. A local was saying his flowers quite often so hopeful. Hasn't done a great deal so far but it's hard to tell as up the back. Looking at the photos I can see some growth in the tank and tank cleaning is much more enjoyable with the faster growing plants gone so guess I can't complain.

I need to take an identification photo next pwc of a red stem plant that is doing pretty well but not certain on name. It's doing a lot better than the red alt (persistent green spot algae) and I haven't been to the lfs in er, at least a fortnight.

Minimal algae still even with more light. CO2 diffusers running well so tempted to take the second led bank from 50% to 100% in a few weeks.

Crypts seem to have melted. Any ideas on how long they take to come back (if they do)?

Nice one in the algae. It's very satisfying keeping it at bay. It's hard to believe how many different types I managed to grow at one time.

I've never had Aponogeton but it's a species I definitely want to try. Need to do a bit more homework before I choose my next plant though.

Yeah def post a picture of that red plant. I think there's a few varieties of Alternanthera. Wondering if it's one of those.

Delapool's 150 gallon tank

This is it now below. Hoping it keeps going!



I'm a little worried it might be short-lived in the aquarium. Hoping it doesn't need to removed.

CO2 system still going well with two diffusers. On the weekend I'm going to reduce the injection time before lights on as this is now making a big difference and I think first time ever that that the low ph cutoff is really being useful to not gas fish.

Oops, may have overdone it - got a message to say I'd lost a fish over night. One of the Congo tetras.
