Thank you, Keith!
Some details :
Great photos as usual especially the upside down shrimp.
Thank you, Keith. I also like the little ones a lot. I've been trying to keep at least one specie in each tank.
That plant reminds me so much of this and similar photos of your Aeschynomene fluitans.
I am sure many members here and another Forum will certainly be asking questions about this plant.
Yes, Keith. That was the first time i had it, came in such bad form i thought i'll lose it for sure. But it came back nicely and had it spread all over the tank at one point :
The top section of that photo in particular reminds me of a tropical lagoon looking towards the shore with all the palm trees in the background.
I know, Keith. It was one of my favorites.
Also got some new friends to play with my Sakura Red shrimps :
Blue Tiger Orange Eye :
An excellent photo of a magnificent Blue Tiger Orange Eye Shrimp. Are you going to breed with more of those Blue Tiger Orange Eye Shrimps.
Thank you, Keith. I have around 10 of these guys, hopefully i'll get babies too.
Right side details :
With the right conditions there should be no reason they should not breed in that well planted tank as long as there is plenty of Mulm under those plants.
I hope so, Keith. I did manage to put a few in Roots of change also, to be sure.
Here is a close up of a Myrio mattogrossense, emersed. This one could be back in the "mix" soon, because i just like it's shape and colour.
It looks more like a flower head than a leaf formation. Can we have a full photo of that plant please?
Keith, is definelty a Myriophillum mattogrossense out of water. I have this plant for a couple of years now and i know.
And you're not the first to say this photo is kind of "different" from the others and that was what i was looking for from the beginning.
Here's a new one, Aeschynomene fluitans fresh leaves :
Has yours every flowered?
Its certainly a beautiful flower it would make a great talking point when in full flower.
Never flowered. I had it in 3 or 4 setups and nothing. It grows like crazy, side shots everywhere, but no flowers yet.
Nutrients will probably be too readily available...no need to flower when it can grow and reproduce vegetatively.
Alex & Tim
A plant usually flowers seasonal because of the weather temperature and daylight hrs. That is the reason for getting flowers in the home garden they must have the correct situation for them. They also require a resting season. That is practically impossible in an aquarium, where every thing is the same 24/7 all the year round.
Red on top :
Alex another great Shrimp photo.
