    very amano-like the tank must been running for a few months, since the foreground is fully covered by glosso.. would be nice if u add a red plant to give it some contrast though

    see u bought the glowlight danio.. how much u paid for one?

    wah very nice...
    my glosso is growing like yours, but got quite a lot of green spot algae even though I have stopped fertilising. Yours doesn't look like there is any algae, share your tips leh.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Thanks all for the compliments.

    Simon,
    Ya, finally found the glowlight danios at Tropical Aquarium, Lor. Harlus.
    $1.50 per piece.
    Actually, I've just added a little red, as in Ludwigia arcuata, among the Rotala green, hopes it will turn out nice.

    Choy,
    Actually no special tips on growing Glosso.
    I do not have green spot on the leaves, but I do have BBA.
    What I did was to snip off those leaves infested with BBA.
    This also encourage the plant to throw out more runners.

    Whee-wheet!!! Very nice.

    Same comment as Simon... a red plant to contrast will be nice.

    Hi barmby,

    No air-con.
    Temp. hovers around 28 - 29 deg.
    Am using a 3 inch dc fan to blow on the water surface.
    My other 2 tanks have temp. of 26-27 deg.
    This particular tank has higher temp., probably due to the heat from the 2 PL lights used.

    Hi chaq,

    Those are the normal driftwoods you find at LFS.

    Got mine from Capricon, Lor. Harlus.
    You got to choose those that have a smooth surface & solid piece, & not some that look & feel hollow to the touch.

    In all, the 1 in my 2 feet consist of 3 pieces of driftwoods tied together with fishing line to create the shape I want.
