Buce

I just ordered some bucephalandra from @JDAquatics (very excited!) and while googling the names I found pics of these really cool ones and was wondering if anyone has ever seen these before.

There are a few pink and orange versions from what I can tell, but this one is absolutely stunning! It's called Pink Martini and I am itching to get my hands on it! Apparently the new leaves are pink for several weeks.



an orangey one



and finally, @RussellTheShihTzu , LOOK AT ALL OF THE BUCE

Something like that would make a stunning shrimp only tank, and not red cherry shrimp, But Crystals of some sort.

I am not parting with my perfectly good shrimp for something that costs more than my college tuition. Maybe a few years down the road when I can expand with more tanks....and budget.

Those are gorgeous varieties! Hopefully he'll have them for sale some day. I ordered brownie phantom and black pearl from him, and they are quite pretty. I'm excited to see them grow in.

How in the world did I miss this post! How are the Buce doing? And Kaxen's, too? Mine have done a bit of melting but new leaves are replacing the ones that are melting.

Haha! I'd a thought you got a notification from any post with the magic word, "buce!" I still have not gotten my package yet, but I should next week. I will post pics!
