    this is an update of 23 feb,
    I lifted the Utricularia from the right side, and I planted the streets.
    I think that is better suited to being among the rocks.
    begins to take shape I wanted.
    comments?

    did you planted hc on the right side?
    looks cool - now UG takes its typical shape , looks like water waves.
    I will give UG a chance in my next nano setup :)

    I see. While it is quite a different impression from the volcanic Hakone in my opinion, the comination of rocks and Utricularia should be quite attactive.

    Maybe should eat boilded eggs while scaping. That area had sulphuric pools where people were boiling eggs in the hot water. :p

    thanks for steven,
    I have taken inspiration from your photos, I did not want to copy it.
    for me the aquarium is always a source of relaxation and tranquility.
    I would not ever have a small sulfurous hell in the bedroom.
    :)

    Yes it is possible and you really need the UG from time to time, otherwise it will stack and end swimming all over the tank, because the lower parts will die because of a lack of light.

    I envy your Utricularia graminifolia, look pack and healthy. I try twice and both fail miserably :(

    is sometimes the cut if not grow too tall.
    use the protocol as the basis of seachem there aren't N and P and utri ago orticanti bladders with leaves and grows very thin, in order to remedy this I have overpopulated the tank with tetra.
    shadow don't worry we are successful because i'm:)):)):)) the magic ahahahah​
