Again haven't felt the greatest thing week so I haven't had a chance to do anything with the 55. I'll get there someday though. Really no need to rush. The mist system is more than just a low for high tech systems. I mist two or three times a day now. My thinking is that with the system and the frequent watering from the top I can keep high humidity (hasn't been a problem so far in the same tank) and it will also lessen the chance of fungus. No idea if the fungus idea is true or not. That is the thing I am most worried about though at this point.
I'm absolutely clueless if the crypts will care about the change in lighting. Submerged would obviously, but these are surprising me. Taking the crypts from submerged to emerged I lost a plant and maybe two or three other leaves. That's it. The rest of the leaves sag, but are still there. I halfway expected a total melt followed by regrowth. I am pretty good at getting new crypts to melt after all. Grrr That free C. affinis 'metallic red' could have gone in here if I had this set up months ago instead of dying that quick death.
Topdown view without me taking the full lid and light off. Same plants everyone has seen before. The Bucephalandra 'gunung sumpit' finally finished opening today. It grows that slow.
You never see this from the usual topdown view because I don't remove the lid. There's the Java fern 'threadleaf'. Some blackening, but that seems to happen when I get Java fern. It's alive and that's all I care about. One baby plant forming that you can see on the top left of the second picture. These pictures are taken with flash, which I should have left off.
Cryptocoryne nurii pics. The gunung sumpit is hiding a pot of mush in the second pic. All the new leaves can be seen. In the first pic, third pot a second new leaf is forming to the lower left of the new leaf. Hard to see though.
Kir royale and artemis in that order. Look close inbetween the leaves and you might be able to see where a new leaf on each is just starting to form. Maybe not though unless you know where to look. Try anyway, you've obviously got time to waste if you're reading this thread.
Part of the gunung sumpit and the mentarang kal-timur. The light green new formed (and cut off in the pic) leaf on the gunung sumpit is much easier to see. So is the leaf forming on the mentarang kal-timur.
One buce missing, the green chile. It was in my last pictures. I'm saving it last for a reason.
Barely visible and not pointed out by me on the picture the other day was a spathe. It is still unopened, but I'm hoping with the bit of growing it did and these new pictures that you'll be able to see it. First flower!
