    I finally succumb to the beauty of the e.quin at Aquatic Avenue. The ones which I bought cheap at C328 and Seaview simply cannot match the specimens in AA. And Eugene was super kind to let me pick a rather large and rooty specimen to bring home.

    hmm not looking good. leaves starting to show translucent and signs of melting...the specimens from seaview. just saw another one at c328 today.

    Overall, the c328 specimen bought earlier was less promising but currently looking better than the 2 seaview specimens. The only difference which I could guess is, C328 specimen was planted onto the main substrate bed while the 2 seaview specimen were planted onto hanging glass pods, which means amount of substrate available is considerably smaller.

    After this experience, I think i will stop buying emerse form and pay more to get the submerge form from AA. Less guesswork and more stability. Anyway, its just $15 more, certainly cheaper than having to buy 2 @$50 and guess whether one (or both) would survive the conversion. As long as one dies, the overall economics would work against buying the submerge form.

    The community would always be people who likes to take the challenge of conversion. But I guess I am not the risk taking one.

    Cheers

    It is normal for emmerse leaves to melt during transition. Once the plant stabilized in the tank, the immersed leaves will grow out. The immersed leaves will slowly replaced the emmersed leaves.

    so what's happening is normal, just make sure you have enough CO2 so that the transition will be faster.

    Well, for my $50 sake, I sure hope both will make it. The melting has become even more obvious today...

    Emersed Red gujing $25 is standard. Never see emerse Blood vomit before but is definitely cheaper than AA. I got mine at $20 each for the submerge form. Word of caution, noobs/ brown fingers like me, please spend slightly more and get the submerge form. End of the day, conversion is really about what? Luck or skill or both?

    Went to get the submersed blood vomit. $8 per head. Roots are already established and Roland mentioned that they are very stable. Would think quin is the same too

    Quite a lot of both blood vomit and quin. They have quin red and quin green. I am also ogling at the plants. But just wanted to try blood vomit first. If successful then I will try e quin. Although by then it should be all snapped up. Haha.

    If keeping emersed, must be in fully enclosed tank bro. To keep the humidity high.

    emersed also good, easy to keep away from algae, but fertilized from the root.

    cheers

    The emmerse leave will melt first as the new submerge leaves grows out. It just replaces itself.

    Below are 2 of my Red Erio bought on 15 April at emmerse form. Now they have fully transit
