okay time for my pics of plantfest

a beautiful ludwigia sp. red scape


tom collecting olive nerites in a freshwater stream by the handful


a nice wild scape with pennywort, sagittaria, ludwigia and others


tom diving for ludwigia


more pennywort with fish swimming around it


tom wears a beard of aquatic moss haha


a nice natural scape


can you see the turtle?


more sagittaria than you would ever want to see in your lifetime


a nice looking aquatic stem plant which is technically an algae however i think it would look nice in a tank

heres more photos of plantfest on tom's behalf:

Be careful to look at the details of each photo, you will notice many things in them.

Riccia in the Fakahatheee swamp



Hygro grows all over the Santa Fe River and is a horrid weed:
Down to 20Ft perhaps more.



Near the mouth of Suwanee River:



the spoonbill:



Mermaid weed:



New foreground plant:

That could have been you! Discovering a new aquatic foreground plant.





Polygonum:



Swamp forest:





Feels like the Jungle in the Amazon, not Florida.



Lily springs:





Note gators sitting there

I like it when wind bag arm chair experts on snails somehow know everything about olive nerites and tell me their habitats and requirements etc:



Yep, they are the experts.............

Another interesting thing, I did not see any heating cables or powersand the entire time...........

Pretty natural.

Wide range of habitats and many of the same plants.

You need to be on nature and a part of it to understand it.
Photo's , our scapes etc will never do it justice no matter how nice.
