    And the destruction is part of that beauty .. sounds weird but true.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    They sure do ... problem with something like this flower - it gets my hands back in the tank.

    The urge is very strong this morning to just rip it all out.

    [​IMG]
    Hard to believe that in that moss bundle hides 9 bits of buce ..

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully the remount of the 9 plants on 3 chunks of rock is enough to get the urge to pass.

    [​IMG]

    but I am not 100% sure about that.

    I always laugh when I see this lable

    [​IMG]

    Could be wrong ... but maybe made in earth would be a better indicator?

    Not 100% sure if this will end-up in LUcky13 but that itch man that itch ...

    he he .. maybe the sticker and the plastic wrapping is the only proud part ...

    So the itch has not been scratched fully, but it is a start.

    [​IMG]

    just jammed some Anubias in on the face .. suspect the BN's will pull it all out.

    [​IMG]

    did move the rock on the right and tighten the corner up a bit since the shelf-pump is no longer on the right hand side of the tank.

    Don't bash the poor Chinese. That piece of rock might just be the best Chinese 'product' you have ever bought and it will last forever.

    That rock looks awesome in the aquarium.

    Last of the BBA

    [​IMG]

    I am about a week in to combat the GSA ... changed the richness of the fertz mix.

    [​IMG]

    See I only have one SAE - suppose the other did a great escape.

    [​IMG]

    BN's moved the anubias around that was planted on the new rock - Oh well.

    Looks like puppies on a bowl of kibble. I can even see their tails wagging as they enjoy it.

    No sump .... canister on most planted tanks or HOB's on the rest - Canister is 90% ceramic material as media.

    Lol - @Innocent159 does not help if the bank only accepts another type of green.

    No rush - and no BBA so we all good.
    [​IMG]

    did a 80% WC nad filter clean yesterday - left the GSA on the glass.

    [​IMG]

    Got some good colour variation on the leaves of the different BUCE

    [​IMG]

    The re-plants are doing well

    [​IMG]

    Older plants are more bushy.

    [​IMG]

    A few surprise survivors with very small leaves



    [​IMG]

    A rather nice show if you are a fish ;-)

    [​IMG]

    Anubias doing well with low light.

    [​IMG]

    And yes flowering is now more regular.

    That just looks awesome. Love the color of the buce leaves. Defnitly a look I will strive to recreate, it will just take me longer as my plants must grow way more.

    Thanks Pierre, yeah without pushing these guys do take a time to grow, then again I am in no rush so happy to have them push a new leaf every 2 months or so. The bigger types seem to push more frequently even in this tank.

    [​IMG]

    Shelf is running empty - had 5 worms on it that mowed the lawn for me ;-(

    [​IMG]
    The replanted buce on the right bottom are doing very well ..

    [​IMG]
    Overall I say the tank has recovered well ... and the weird thing, I have no desire to rescape - just yet ;-)
