I find that price doesn't always match up with better or worse. Slow growers don't bother me. I hve SOOOO many plants both aquatic and non aquatic(and one non aquatic doing very well in my aquarium lol)
Oh yea... fishy theft for plant theft eh? OK then...my new pet the frilled dragon will get set up on my dinning room table for a while right in the middle of most of my larger aquariums. When a Jurassic park looking creature hisses and frills at you then you may forget what fish you were there to snatch ..mwahahaha.

Between you and Izzy I'm really starting to want some new plants!

I actually love the price I got on the Kir Royale. I do wish it would grow just a bit quicker. I've only gotten one new leaf in the month I've had it. I wonder if it's a light issue as it is in the front corner which is as far from the light as you can get. Hopefully it'll pick up if I ever get the 55 actually set up.

I'm confused. You're leaving the frilled lizard out so I take it instead? I can do that. If you think mentioning one is going to keep me away, you have the wrong guy.

Get new plants! Just don't let Izzy know it's because of her. They'll be no stopping her then.

I got new plant markers this week that Chesh found me. So far I've only put them on the newest plants. BTW, I should have bought them when she showed me. I dawdled and it ended up costing me $5.







That is semuntai 2, theia brown, centipede 2, bukit biru, and sanggau 2. The theia brown has some leaf damage you can see on the top of the picture. I might lose that leaf, but hoping the plant is ok. Hope the pictures were worth any wait.

To make room I had to condense the Java fern down to three pots (need to get rid of some of it), got rid of the dead Crypt, and added two pots. The 10 gallon is completely full!

Full tanks are bad! Very, very bad! That's why my wishlists on plants and fish are about 3.47 miles long. Approximately.

Not totally sunshine and rainbows with the new plants. Little more damage to leaves than I had originally thought. As long as the plant doesn't die that's fine. New leaves will regrow. The bukit biru has been the worst losing several leaves along the middle. I'm hoping tht's not something I caused.


Compare that to the pictures from four days ago and you can see what I'm talking about.

My second day off, so I'm going to get the 55 gallon set up even if it kills me. I'm not feeling good though so this very well might end up taking the whole day. This whole post was just an excuse to take a break anyway!

That sucks man! Hopefully it will bounce back. Is the rhizome still in good shape? I imagine as long as its still healthy it should bounce back and grow new leaves.
