As it happens when you have only one tank and limited space, but you have to make space for another favorite plant, it involved minor rescaping.
can i be first on your list to buy this?

Top down photos aren’t always clear because of the reflection of the light bulbs and ripples on the surface. However, if you can manage to get a clearer shot, the colors can look amazing! I took this top down shot of the back of the tank by moving the light all the way forward.

Eriocaulon sp. ‘Vietnam’, one of my favorite spiky plants.

A relatively slow grower, it does best under moderate light or in part shade. Propagate by dividing side shoots from mother plant, usually after they have developed at least 8-10 leaves of their own. At that point they will have also developed their own roots. If you divide too early, plantlets may fall apart at the base.

Staurogyne sp. ‘Purple’ that I added yesterday. I love the hint of purple that it displays under proper light combinations. Apologies for the overexposed cellphone photo. It doesn’t do any justice to it’s true color.

I planted Lloydella lysimachia ‘Aurea’ next to it, which is still converting to submersed growth. I really hope it will have yellow leaves or else I’ll have to replace it with something else.

I know it’s a very common plant, but has anyone grown it before? What was your experience?

Current state of the tank. Sometimes I miss some of the plants that I got rid of.

Thanks, Nate. I hope you’re settling in well in your new home. Start a new tank and journal when you can.
