I get the idea that he doesn't want me tinkering with it! Maybe if several of us give him the same message (increase CO2, ferts, prune, etc.) he'll give in!

Yep, nice plant. I guess several people have been asking about it. If only the Rotala Green that I got from Greg would grow vertically Ö.

I was there today, it looks pretty good from far away, but to my newbie eye, I saw a few problems. I appologize in advance for the flash in a few of the pictures and the overall poor quality...cameras have improved quite a bit since I got mine!

full tank:

algae growth:


brownish/yellow and dirty leaves

and a final full tank shot





There are beautiful discus and cardinals in the tank, as well as a few other tetras (rummy-nose and maybe another, I don't remember for sure). I left the pictures full size so you can get a close up should you want one!

Thanks for the picks!

Where'd that HOB come from? And he still needs to replace that diffuser with something that works! I wonder if he's doing much in the way of fertilizing with those discus in there.

I went there yesterday and gave him a bunch of Glosso. He said he wanted to replace the Tenellus with something faster growing. I don't think he's fertilized, either. The BGA (algae) appeared when he ran out of CO2 for 2 weeks. I don't know why he's running the HOB--I didn't ask.

We'll see ....
