    Absolutely gorgeous!

    If you trim, Cape town needs more plants to soak up our nitrates :p
    Although today we have had some stellar rain!!

    Well now that I have two types I suppose I need to look into the propagation of them if they continue to survive ;-)

    Maybe I should start by sneak feeding them another OC+ tab tomorrow while the others just get water column fertz.

    Much easier to actually have loads of guppies than trying to collect and then recycle into a tank :thumbup:

    Thanks was paging back .. the tank has really done very well for slow growing plants.

    Thanks - the duckweed is driving me crazy - almost warmer weather then I will do a WC - now it is just in maintenance mode.

    If you do not run you tanks at hectic high temps guppies are actually ok, do not overfeed and they tend to breed to a level that the tank can sustain.
