On Sep. 29, 2012 I bought 2 bunches of a plant which was sold under the label BACOPA CRENATA
. However, from the images i see online it more likely resembles BACOPA MONNIERI (aka WATER HYSSOP)
. Despite both bunches surviving, much of the lush leaves have wilted
off. I tried relocating them toward the center of my tank where it will receive more light
, but the leaves continue to wilt off. So, before they completely turn to mush Ill conduct a basic experiment suggested by a very experienced fellow forum-er, Aokashi
the Bacopa which will bring them closer to the lighting
. So half of my Bacopa is now floating at the surface while the other half remains planted in the middle of the tank.
Tank: 5g cycled
Light: Standard CFL
Inhabitants: Blooey (male Betta) and 2 Anubias
Photo Period: 5 hrs/day
So I chose the shabbiest of the bunch to be in the floating group, here they are...
Here is the group that is now floating at the surface of the tank (after I cleaned off all the dying leaves)...
and here is the group that is still planted in the middle of the tank...
Blooey! Get out of the picture! =P As I was saying... here is the group that is still planted in the middle of the tank...
I will post progress every few days.
