My Very First Flower!

I'm so incredibly excited about this. It's the very first time I've had a plant flower in one of my tanks. Here's the first picture where the bud hasn't opened yet. I imagine in the next 24-48 hours it should be opened and I'll have a new picture to post. I also have pictures of all my tanks on my website at http://www.billandheather.net/the_fish.htm that are up to date.
Here's the flower:


Bill

Ok, I was hoping to have another flower pic to post, but it's really taking it's time blooming. Since this is my first time, does anyone have any ideas how long it is going to take for it to fully bloom?

It's Cabomba, but I'm not sure the exact species. I think the carolina species, I may be wrong.

when my anubias got a flower, it had a bud for about a week before it opened. Be patient, it will happen soon!!! Good pic too! I didn't know cabomba flowered.

And that shrimp on your web site is an amano shrimp or Caridina japonica

There's actually 3 species of cabomba that will flower, but I'm not sure exactly which one I have. I have a really great book that I use for reference, but I've loaned it to a friend temporarily. I'll post the exact species when I get my book back. Anubias flowers? I have some anubias nana. Does that species flower? I've got two pretty healthy nana plants, but never noticed a bud. Of course, it's just now getting to the healthy stage. It's had some problems in the not too distant past.
