Oh, dang it. Can't seem to find my list. I can name some of them at least. Some of the plants are in more of a plantlet form, while others of course are larger.


Wendtii, Red (Cryptocoryne wendtii)
Wendtii, Green (Cryptocoryne wendtii)
Frazeri (Anubias 'Frazeri')
Anubias Nana (Anubias barteri v. ‘Nana’)
Anubias Coffeefolia (Anubias barteri v. ‘Coffeefolia’)
Amazon Sword
Balansae (Cryptocoryne crispatula)
Bolbitus (Bolbitus heudelotii)
Sword, Red Melon (Echinodorus barthii)
"Dwarf" onion plant
Amazon Sword "Giant Mother Plant" (Echinodorus bleheri) (20"-24+")
Anubias Barteri Round Leaf "Giant Mother Plant"
Java Fern (Microsorium pteropus)


There are probably a couple I am forgetting too. I had to order off the net because the LFS's around here can be very hit and miss. Aquariumplants.com was awesome - will use again.

Think u have a black brush algae problem. better take care of it before it gets out of hand, cos that would be a shame.

oto's dont eat bba. The only fish that does, reluctantly, is the SAE.

Tufts often appears on driftwood, decorations and r green leaves of slow growing plants like anubias.
bba is brought into the tank by something...maybe one of the plants was affected when u bought and planted it. I saw little black spots on my newly planted Parva once and took them out immediatly.

Get a test set.
i think ure nitrate and phosphate levels are a bit high.....red algae can thrive if that's the case.
Remove all the dead and decomposing leaves.

Since u have a lot i would consider pruning all the affected leaves.
and try to keep it under control checking ure water parameters.

U can also bleach ure plants.
The thing is that traces of the algae are probably all over ure tank now (tubes, filter and so on).

BBA is the worst algae ever and sometimes requires very extreme measures

The experts here on the site can probably help u better
