One new setup.
I have decided to drop Lilaeopsis Novaezelandiae and replace her with Utricularia Graminifolia. Also I have planted a lot of Crypts and I have changed my HQI bulbs from 6000k to Blau 6500k. This is the result:
From time to time, when necessary, I am taking out all foreground, trim outside the tank and replanting after. This operation is needed at about 5-6 months.
Unfortunately, it seems my substrate it became depleted, and a new setup will be required in the next month. I am looking now for Dennerle Deponit Mix as a fertilizing substrate.
After the new setup I added a new plant, Barclaya Longifolia. Unfortunately , due to my conditions in aquarium I had to remove it from tank due to the fact that she grew more than 4ft. It seems that the strong HQI 6000k lights made that plant an invasive one. Anyway, all that remain from that plant was maybe 200 new baby plants and this picture:
That's the female flower; have you seen any tiny arrowhead shaped things near the base of some different plants? V. americana's dioecious; one sex per plant. Hopefully you've got some male plants in there as well! If you see little yellow-green balls the size of a shrimp egg floating on the water's surface you've got males in there too. Herd them into an area near the female flower and set up some sort of floating ring to keep the pollen from getting washed away and you should get viable seeds.
