Thanks for the remarks. I do nothing special for the crypts 'cept excercise patience and weed them out to make room for intresting stem plants.Stevenl said:What ferts do you use to make the crypts so lovely?
This is not a tank that has been aquascaped to a predetermined layout and grown for 80 days. It is the result of my ongoing intrest in the hobby. Everyday I trim, weed and feed but I never completely redo my tank.Macbrush said:you making me want to completely redo my tank!!!
That is the larger Marsilea grown in my lean conditions. Erik Leung tells me that it looks identical to his minima and that the same Marsilea in his conditions has 1/4" to 1/2" round leaves and is taller. Most of the brown crypts are an unknown variety that seems to stay smallish for me. I gave Erik a plant to see how big it will get given richer supplementation. For size comparison look at my spiralis, I expect that relationship would hold given richer conditions. I think this specific combination holds great potential for use in a more selective scape.Roger Miller said:I love the way that your green foreground plant (glosso?) has intergrown with the burgundy-colored crypts.
Do you mean the fine whorls of Myriophyllum matogrossense green bettween the crypt spiralis and behind the L. aromatica? Or is it the small leaf pairs of Micranthemum sp. You had some Myriophyllum matogrossense green in your tank when I saw it.chrisl said:what green plant is that in the background about 1/3 from the r. side?? between the ?balansaes and behind the E.Stellata?
