Looks like the diatoms are slowing down. My plants are growing really fast. The sword plants are releasing large leaves the other plants are almost on top of the surface. Im trying to see if i can grow green algae on the driftwood for natural look. Right now I have 8 cluster with 20 leaves of anubias nanas thats tied to that big driftwood. Do you know if those Anubias will scatter around the driftwood? Im still looking for a Red long plants to put behind that sword plant that will survive that discus temp.

I can hook you up with some of this at the next plant club meeting, it grows like a weed in my Discus tank: https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...ails.php?id=58

I don't know if you would call what the leaves of Anubias grow from a Rhizome or a thick stem, but basically that stem will grow in a more or less straight line producing leaves as it goes. You will trim off the older leaves as they get covered in algae or die off and after a while you'll have a big length of this stem with roots coming off it of the whole length. You can use a sharp knife to cut the stem cleanly into 1/2-1" sections and put them back in your tank. They will sprout new leaves and the cycle will continue. Note that Anubias are much like Java Fern, they don't really belong in soil, but rather with the roots exposed to moving water. Tying them to wood or wedging them between rocks has worked best for me. I've also seen people leave them floating with good success.
