Of the Seachem Daily Dosage Schedule which supplement do you think that the dwarf Sag needs the most?
It is fun to see the plants finally explode but you are right it is starting to get crowded.
Other than harvesting some of the plants for other tanks;
what other option would help maintain the plants without making them grow like crazy or die slowly?

You'll probably need all ferts to keep it growing well. It's like saying, which vegetable and vitamin can a human go without and still grow..Answer is none if you want to stay healthy.

Slowing down growth can be a matter of reducing the light, and selecting slower growing species of plants.

Although I know this is in an office, I would like to see a photo with all the surrounding lights off except the tank light. This would minimize the glare, and enhance this fantastic bowl of yours.

There are no surrounding lights. That is just the 6700k light bulb that I have in the cubicle light fixture roughly 12 inches above the Betta Bowl. If I turned that off - it would be very, very dark.
But I will try sometime this week to see if I can get different photos.

I have changed the water in the tank hoping that the water hardness of my tap water will bring the Dwarf Sag back some Green coloring. It has slowly faded to yellow/green. I have backed off on the Seachem Phosphorus and Seachem Nitrogen hoping that would slow the rate of growth.

But to be honest, I realize that even if the plants grow packed, they only occupy the bottom 1/2 of the Betta Bowl.

Euro actually likes to sleep on top of the plants anyway, and when he wants to hide from the light (except when he is hungry) he likes to also hide under the Anubias(?) and other plants. The Java Fern in my opinion seems to have stayed the same basically but I have seen it pearl (wow!) I think.

So last week I basically gave the tank a water change for the water hardness and the entire Seachem Daily Dosage Schedule except for the Seachem Nitrogen and Seachem Phosphorus. I almost shut off the cubicle light for the long weekend to limit the light, but after thinking about how long that would be (Saturday through Wednesday) I left it on.
I left a co-worker to take care of my Betta Bowl last year for a week vacation and came back to an almost dead Bowl! I don't want that to happen again!

John N., tonight when I get home I am going to try and find the print out I made with your help on putting the link into my signature. Summer has reduced my time spent online. I would like to at least add this tread to my signature. Thanks again.

I didn't get my digital camera into work this past week. I was focused on my Van in the shop. Sorry. I don't know when I will be able to try to take different shots at work. I have a ton on my home computer. I am afraid of posting too many in one shot. I really wish I could just dump a ton of my shots into Photo Album and then choose which ones to use in a thread. Oh well, I'll get this stuff down someday.

Tomorrow is Monday, and I have been on vacation for 7 days.
I will see what my Betta Bowl looks like at the Office.
I remember what it looked like last year after a week vacation.
