What does OEM mean?

These are the bulbs that are in the two smaller tanks.

That lily is beautiful, but I would remove the leaves that reach the surface and only keep the brand new short ones. Otherwise you'll end up with 30+ leaves all at the surface, blocking light to your other plants. I learned this the hard way >.< Or if you like the look of the floating leaves, just keep 1 or 2 at a time.

Thanks for the tip!

Should I clip at the base of the bulb and remove the entire stem?

Yep that's what I do. It'll keep sending up new leaves regularly and you can just keep snipping off the long ones as they're replaced :) If you notice the base is getting really thick and rooty over time with lots of new growth, you can split it into two separate plants as well.

I liked the before pictures better, especially in the third tank. I find that putting stuff directly in the middle just cuts the view of the tank in half. Setting it 2/3rds inside the tank is much more visually appealing IMHO. Rule of Thirds.

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.
