I agree. It can get very time demanding very quickly to have more than one tank anyway, and trying to ensure that both tanks are working right can make it a bit overwhelming. Plus if you concentrate on one at a time, you're budget is a bit more flexible.

yeah... I'm out of school right now so I have been doing a lot of projects. the gardneri killifish are all most done. I just have to put them in the 10 gallon. my mudskipper tank I just have to buy the tank and mudskippers because my 50 gallon has to be drilled and my lfs has been to busy to do it. but yeah after thinking about it I'm putting off every thing until I finish the mudskippers and reef Rolling Eyes

Look what I noticed today. Very Happy



My Sagittaria subulata appears to be developing flower buds, wonder what the flowers will look like.

Ooh! I hope they bloom... I'm curious what they look like, too! Very Happy

Google tells me they should be white flowers with 3 petals but I'm not 100% sure this is S. subulata so I'm pretty curious too. Very Happy

On another topic, started cycling one of my used and abused Aquaclear 70 filters for use on my new project, Nutrafin max is a great food to use to cycle because I have never had a fish that has been enthusiastic about eating the damned stuff.

Flowers opening, looks like it is S. subulata after all!





Don't think they're fully open so will take another picture when they are.

I like 'em!

It means you're doing something seriously right when you get aquatic plants to flower, doesn't it? Cool

Don't think I'm doing anything special, I think this is just a nice easy plant to grow. Laughing Dosed DIY Osmocote tabs very heavily just before it flowered, that might have something to do with it.

It's Elatine gratioloides; I don't think it's available outside of Australasia but there is an (apparently) very similar species called Elatine triandra in circulation.

EDIT:

Fully opened flower:


They don't last very long, probably only about a day once fully opened. I think it may be too dry and/or cold once they break the water surface.
