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.

Also jesus christ, Reefing Madness is my new favourite moderator, lol
