Thanks for all the comments!

Yeah thats all SŁŖwassertang in the bottom of the tank in the second pic. I would call it a slow-medium grower. I bought a portion of it from Aquaticmagic a little over a year ago. I've sold a couple handfuls of it , but what you see in the pic is basically all its grown. The more I get the faster is seems to grow, that pic is about a month old and there is definelty quite a bit more now. The tank it is in has 2wpg w/ pressurried co2. I used the flourish line for quite a while and it grew fine, but slow. Then I switched to EI ferts and noticed quite a growth increase. I wouldn't say EI ferts are nessacary, I just think SŁŖwassertang perfers heavy fertilizing. So what ever you use I would definetly add excess. It also doesn't seem to need a lot of light, it is shaded most of the time and can survive in near darkness. It is really thick in some spots.

It is quite rigid. The fish can't get into it, which is probably why the cherry shrimp love it so much. Even the cory sits on top of it. I was doing a water change today and I must of spooked one of my threadfins, he dove into the SŁŖwassertang and got very stuck. Only his tail was sticking out and I actually had to reach in and free him, cuz he was starting to panic.

These are pics as of today, a few hours after a water change.


.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

I love your SŁŖwassertang. It looks so healthy and lush. I didn't buy mine from AquaticMagic even though I use them alot. I bought mine off AquaBid. I'll order it from AqauticMajic this time. Thanks for the info.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
