All very nice shots and Tanks!!!!!!!!

Odd little moss!!!!! From backyard!!!!!! If it survives and grows, please do keep pics going on that one.

Heh... Pearling BGA!!!

Pygmy Croaking Gourami, or Sparkling Gourami (Trichopsis pumilus) are splendid little animals. They get about 1.5" long and yes, they croak very loud, and often.

Yes, the purple stuff is the roots from the ferns. I have like 6 kinds of java ferns in various tanks, Windelov, Tropica, Narrow Leaf, Needle Leaf, Wide leaf, and Regular. You can do a lot with just the different types of Ferns available.

Yes there are different kinds of M. Lace... but I am not really familiar. Yours does look different than mine though. I don't think I could catch a Rummynose in mine LOL...

Taking pictures and sharing them is half the fun, IMO

That one stem was just starting to bush out, BUT I did a major clean out of some fast growers right after that pic and after I was done, I looked and didn't see the macrandra anymore. The idiot that I am, threw it in the trash!!

I am left with a 4" stem of it. It is in another tank slowly growing.

Those are some great pics, Dan. I really like the pic of the flower pearling.

Here is a shot of Rotala Macrandra, just got a new camera. I love this plant, just planted 40 stems of it in 4 different tanks. Grew it once a year ago, it did really well for me. Tried it many times since, just melts away. This will be the last try for a while, wish me luck!

Well, you guys have forced my hand. I posted this pic about a year ago and I was stunned since at the time, there was no CO2, no ferts, no knowledge.

A little too close-up, but here is my L. aromatica pearling:



I have other plants that pearl as well, but can't get good enough pictures of them.

Great pics guys! Jchillin, sometimes ignorance is bliss. The one and only time I got R. Macrandra to grow, I didn't know what it was or how to look after it. It was my first red plant. I put in in my first ten gallon planted tank over a year ago. Like yourself, no ferts, no C02, no knowledge! And boy, did it grow. I had a ton of it. I gave it away thinking I could grow it again no problem. I have not been able to keep it since.

An older picture of some Rotala (I don't have it anymore, far too high maintenance)



And some Limn. Aromatica that I still have (haven't figured out how to propagate it yet, if I cut it off and replant it, it floats up from the O2 buildup )

Yup, just keeps growing without roots.. It's like it takes in all it needs from the water through it's leaves.

hehehe, if only you knew....

no really, he has almost no algae, but the glass does get the occasional scrape
