A long journey of just trying stuff.


Recommended Posts

29 gallon community tank before and after trimming. I even trimmed back my bolbitis which I hated to do but it was heading across the front of the tank.   

It usually takes a while for me to start liking the tank again after a trim but I like it a lot this time around. It also allowed me to float some of my wisteria trimmings which I always like doing.

I love the look of your tank. The Wisteria has a really nice form. The leaves on mine aren’t nearly as fine. I bet the Monte Carlo will like all the extra light!

I hope so, the monte carlo is the only plant I've struggled with since I got back in the hobby well that and S. repens.

It's silly,but every time I think about trimming my Bolbitis I feel bad.  It took so long for this plant to really take off.  And I know some people are having trouble getting in their areas so I hate just throwing it away but it's genuinely starting to take over the left side of my tank. And I know it should be planted in the background because they can get massive but so can wisteria and it grows way faster. It was a toss up between wisteria blocking my view every week or so or let the bolbitis take a few years growing out to eventually do the same.

You could save the clippings in a bucket and sell them off on Ebay.
