That made me laugh Chesh
Noticed over the last three or four days that the plants are definitely growing a bit each day which, given the surface cover, is quite remarkable. The Miriophyllum matogrossense melted initially but seems to be making a comeback. I originally started with 10 stems and 4 have completely disappeared ... not bad as I originally only ordered 5 but was sent 10 by mistake
. Was sceptical about the Miriophyllum anyway due to its light requirements but it does seem to be a reasonable colour so time will tell. To be honest it is too densely planted for a creek so think I had better start calling it an Amazon Oxbow Lake....think I covered that
I am having to the harvest the surface plants daily. If anybody wants any and I can post them to you, just let me know and I will send you some. It would be a mix of Limnobium spongia, Salvinia natans and Riccia fluitans but you could always separate them out quite easily if you wanted.
Finally, after almost 2 years of planning, numerous changes to those plans, many hold ups beyond our control and one complete change of direction the first fish have taken up residence. Managed to stick to the list so far..... Cardinal Tetras which seem to have settled in well enough and exploring the tank as a shoal. Let's hope they keep it up!
I will get a photo up later.
