I am currently starting up a 10 gallon multI tank. (Neolamprologus multifasciatus) I am looking for a floating plant, preferably a different color than green. Any ideas??
Nutter, I'm surprised! You are a plant guru in my eyes. Do you have any idea why it failed? And what the other two plants were that you weren't successful with?Nutter said:PH 8.2 is definitley at the extremes for this plant. It usually prefers water to be neutral or slightly acidic. It likes liquid ferts & you need pretty intense lighting for it to retain it's pink/red colour. I've tried this plant in several tanks & have failied miserably each time. One of only 3 plants I havn't had some form of success with.
So give them a try. Just because I couldn't get them going doesn't mean you can't. The Red Floater is pretty hard to find in Perth (got LFS to special order it) but I think there are a few places it can be ordered from online.ryanr said:Shame, I really liked the look of the red floater for my own tank
