Beautiful looking tank.
Gotta love snail's miss my mystery snail's my last one died a few day's ago, and they're not easy to get a hold of around here because of the ban
Keeping my eyes open!

I've ordered Buce twice and both times they declined a bit, not melting but definitely declined when first added to the tank. But after a few months they filled in and roots were strong enough after 3 months to remove the ties on the rock.

Thanks for the info. The piece has some tattered leaves, a yellowing leaf or two and a couple holes, but the roots are monstrous, so that gives me hope and also a new flower spathe coming up! The RH snail was cleaning up the piece too and made me smile! Remided me of your recent pic.

My one flower opened and I saw it early in the morning. When I came back a few hours later to see if it had opened more some big fat snail had mangled it. Didn't eat it. Just mozied it to shreds.
