    The importing of plants into Aust is very restricted also from state to state is controlled all plant material not only Aquarium plants.

    The markings on that plant are beautiful.

    Roy, all i can tell you for now is that L. palustris stays real small compared to L. repens. I'll keep an eye on it.

    Keith, Autumn it is! :D

    Describing a dutch style aquarium : simply, the love for colors!
