Zebra stone perfect fit!

Love zebra stone! Apparently native to Australia. Our Petco carries it but pricey. Found another lps today that had it for great price. So excited! It fit perfectly in Avalanche tank. I found a piece that reminds me of snow capped mountains.

WOW! MamaJ, that looks fantastic! Is that white gravel with "snow capped mountains"?! This is amazing. I need a "full tank" picture.

Cobomba blooms??? That is awesome. I assume the flower is underwater though? Or did it pop above? So this means it is not a true submersible plant?

Sorry, way too many questions. What I mean is, "lookin' good!"

LOL.

Alpine is such a gorgeous boy. I bet he will end up blue body and red fins and look just like Antigua. I was watching video of Antigua back when he was WHITE... I actually like him better now!-so colorful and interesting.

The flowers are completely under water. I have some pictures on my phone I will try to upload. The flowers actually opened up more yesterday and look like a star. Really cool!

Thank you on Avalanche's tank. Yes white gravel. When I saw the shape of that piece of zebra stone I was so excited because it had the look of a mountain range. I tried to slope the gravel accordingly to give it more of a slope look. I was pondering getting some of the white aquarium sand or a finer grain of white gravel to give it more of a snow look.

Yes I think Alpine will end up with more of a blue body too. It is a lot of fun to see how they change. Is your avatar Antigua when he was white?

Yes, that is him! Not that long ago, either. He changed so fast and I didn't know what was going on. LOL. I took the avatar picture the day I joined here and now only his face is white.

Avalanche tank

Here is a full picture of Avalanche's tank. I have the orange cabomba in there right now until I can get some more purple. I like the purple better as far as it is a very deep green and looks more like evergreens. I wonder what other plants would look good with that mountain/snow theme?

Cabomba varieties

I have 3 varieties of cabomba right now. Green is most common to find, but have also been able to get the purple and recently the orange. All are variations of green but the top of the plant is what shows the colors. The orange has turned a very vibrant color. Have been putting some additional light on the tank and apparently they like that. The purple is very beautiful too. Unfortunately it is not as vibrant right now and hard to get just the right angle on a picture to show you the coloration. It has been very interesting seeing the different colors come out. They all seem to be growing well and the flowers have now opened up into a full star. Pretty to cool to see flowers blooming under water!
