    I don't think this is cardamine lyrata, although feel free to prove me wrong.

    Nice tank btw

    How long did it take for your plants to start pearling so nicely?

    hey dood :)

    it is not h. leucocephala and it is not h. maritima...

    what else grows like this beside cardamine?

    i wish i could get a positive id, but it is pretty whatever it is, not as dominating as normal brazillian pennywort..

    @juri - the only cleanup crew in there is snails... i just added 3 siamese algae eaters today, will see how it goes, dont really have any other algae besides on the wood. if it doesnt go away, i will drop the water level and scrub it with excel...

    I actually like the look of the algae. Makes it look more natural. Algae happens in nature so having some in your scape shouldnt be a crisis in my opinion :)

    I think mine have levelled out a bit now. They also start after a few hours of lights on. They pearl more after the CO2 switches off.

    Coming along nicely by the way, the mystery plant is a hydrocotyle, most likely maritima, it is however difficult to tell from the photo.

    hey Garuf, plant is definitely cardamine :p

    i have taken the wood out, it was using up valuable stem real estate. i know i was going for a lower maintenance scape, but i can't say no to new stems...
