New colorful plants from Rich311k!!! (pics of course)

Hello everyone,

Just wanted to publicly thank Rich311k for shipping me some colorful plants. Unfortunately FedEx didn't quite meet their overnight requirements and so the plants were not in terribly good shape (instead of getting them Saturday morning I received them Monday morning!). Since I don't know what will make it and what won't I just chucked them all in the tank wherever I could find a space. So its a hodgepodge to the extreme.

My favorite new piece is of course the stellata which is dead center and a beautiful shade of pink (I'm hoping its color will come back quickly).

Please try to ignore the huge eyesore in the upper right corner. That is my poor man's attempt at isolating my barb (treating for an assortment of issues). Without the foil he was constantly being harassed by the gourami and other barbs (they could see him through the clear acrylic and wanted his food since he's rarely eating). With it, he's peacefully *hopefully* healing.

OK, onto the pics!











Had to throw in this pic of my gourami (he never poses for the camera )



For payment my daughter would like to shake your hand (ok I got suckered into looking at the other pics on the camera and couldn't resist)



Thanks for letting me share,

7

Sorry man, not pearling. That is just my PH dispersing the CO2 bubbles. I have it partially hidden behind the driftwood in the back right corner. Keep thinking its pearling though, that makes me feel better.

So unfortunately it doesn't look like any of the plants are going to make it. A couple are completely rotting in the tank and even the nice large piece in the center looks like its on a downward spiral.

So almost everything was removed after my last trim and PWC (I did a huge 75% or so because of all the crud). I honestly thought nothing was going to survive but the top 3" of the large piece (I'm still confused on whether its the L. aromatica or the P. stellata?) looks like its going to pull through. I've just let it float around the tank since it's too small to bury and I read it needs higher light levels. It hasn't shot out any roots for me to attach it to anything, and I'm afraid to damage it if I try to tie the stem against something. I hear its a slow grower so it might be floating for quite a while.

All the other plants are gone except for the wierd purple stem that had no leaves on it (Pic #4 from above). I'll have to grab a pic because it looks hysterical now. The base is rotting so all that is holding it up is this toothpick-like central shoot. Looks like you were eating corn on the cob but stopped 1/2 way up. I don't expect it to do anything, but I thought since its not rotting all over the tank I'll leave it be (maybe the Oto or BN pleco will munch on it).

No duckweed as of yet (keeps fingers crossed)!
