    Finally the aromatica is starting to show... Yay hopefully i can get them to turn a nice purple as they grow taller. It was 2 5cm stems i received a month ago. Need to propagate them... Would love a nice bush of aromatica [​IMG][​IMG]

    Very nice. The last time I had aromatica they didn't even have a chance to get purple, but the polkadot loaches had a nice meal at least.

    Damit, dont know why, but seems aromatica is difficult to come by these days. Epic aquatics is constantly out of stock. These 2 stems i received from a friend.

    Limpophila Aromatica is one of my favourite plants, and I have had it in various tanks over a number of years.
    The plants seem to differ quite significantly at times, with leaf shape and colouration differing.
    The current batch I have in a 2 foot low tech tank has much narrower leaves than in previous tanks, and it has not coloured up as brightly as in the past.

    I think they like lots of light and fertz, but lets see how it goes, at 1st i thought they might be the green verity of aromatica, but it does seem they have n little pink tint underneath the leaves.

    Thanx Claire, its a work in progress, the tank is currently in a experimental phase lol im busy testing my own fertilizer that i want to brand and sell as a commercial fertilizer for planted tanks. Hopefully we can bring something to the hobby thats cheaper than the other products and lasts you a bit longer with great plant growth and zero algea. Some of the chemicals is a bit expensive but its a once off investment so i hope it works out lol

    Tank is doing great, just removed most of the hydrocotyle, it was taking over and at a alarming speed lol. O and i broke one of my tanks braces.... Not so nice, luckily a friend will be cutting a new brace for me so i can replace it. [​IMG][​IMG]
