    Thank you, I usually sell them to an LFS. They also come in handy for starting new tanks.

    I like that idea. Some of the plants in the tank will happily grow out of the water. Just need more above the tank to do that. Sounds like a possible future project.

    Wow that looks like a forest in the fall. Gorgeous. Do you supplement CO2?

    Very nice, it must be pleasing to have a passion pull in a few bucks at the same time

    Thanks. Yes I use pressurized CO2.

    Thank you, it is nice as it pays for some of my marine costs as well.

    This is Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'cuba'. It has been at the surface for over a week prior to today's trim. It will most likely lose a lot of the color until it reaches the surface again.

    Your tank still continues to amaze me!

    What do you use for CO2 again?

    Thank you, I use pressurized CO2. I have a 5lb bottle I got and refill at a local home brewing supply store.

    Thanks Vinny, they would do well where you live I think. I know folks ship them via USPS Priority. I would take 2 or 3 days to get to you. Unfortunately 3 days in variable temperatures is too much for the plants to have a good survivability rate.
