Many thanks! The depth is tricky sometimes to reach all spots but it wasn't much extra on cost.

Planning to take some trimmings of ludwigia to start replacing the red alt this long weekend. So not much filling in of tank yet. The GSA doesn't seem to have made a dramatic return. Been so busy though that testing and ferts dosing has been a bit erratic. Got a week off to check out.

Also still to properly check out the wilted first flower - I think there are tiny black seeds but not sure.

Seeds not sure on yet. I lost the second flower as went out for tea half-way through pwc and it just wilted badly on the stem below the flower (I swear it didn't get pinched).

Bit of a quick post as just finished (10.40pm ). All the red alt was pulled out and replaced with ludwigia or Java fern plantlets that I decided to harvest. Hoping it all stays put. Pics tomorrow when I can see what I did better. Lol - showing off a tank with progressively less plant mass.

Should be a good month or two of letting it grow (I hope!).

Felt bad taking out the red alt as decent stems. Then I realised the leaves were in bad shape and shedding pieces. Went much quicker then lol.

Decided to have red plants towards the back on either side with a hedge of Java ferns in the front. The flowering plants in the back behind central ornament still. Crypts are in there somewhere maybe.

My original idea of growing Java fern between red plants I wasn't quite happy with.

Java can get big! Having it attached to something and being able to move it around if great.

How do you attach? I was thinking of glueing the plantlets to a pebble or something. I've got another couple getting to a decent size soon and could be transplanted. I think - size wise the plantlets are about soup spoon size in diameter. Not sure if that is good time to transplant or leave them longer?

I had read they can get to a foot high, they are just slower growing then the red plants due to my tank depth I think. No algae on them though so happy there.

I use clear rubber bands or fishing line. If it is mostly rhizome I sometime use portions of hair net.
