30 litre suffering from a brown algae, freshly replanted. Any idea what the species of plant is in the righthand front corner?



3.5 gallon fry growout tank. RHS Severly cut back java fern to remove brown algae taken from the 30 litre tank. 15+ zebra danio fry at least.

Well to be honest the 3.5G was an emergency buy to put 5 danio fry in. Once they were in it was so bare I put all the plants I had bought at the same time as the tank in as well. There they sat until yesterday when I finally planted them. So the fry tank is not planted it just has all the spare plants stuffed in it. Kind of handy in that respect. All the other fry have been added as I search my water changes before I flush it.

The red plant on the right looks like either R. wallichi or red Myriophyullum to me. It's a bit leggy; what kind of light is the tank running?

It was 2 x 8W T5's with a mineral encrusted cover I.e. not enough. I changed the lighting the end of last week to 3 x 16W HOT5's. I'm hoping that this will be sufficient. Still early but the new leaves in the crown now look red where they wern't before.

Also is the red stem plant at the back LudwegiaRepens?

The red stem plant in the back is the one I was talking about before, but the one in the front right does indeed look like it could be L. repens although I can't see it terribly well.
Pretty tanks, by the way!

Thanks for the help.

The problem I have with living in Hong Kong is that I can't speak Cantonese so generally have to rely on recognising fish and plants from the pictures I see on the internet. Not always very successfully.

(Almost) Certainly a Ludwidgia species, but it could be a number of things, including L. glandulosa. Try http://www.tropica.dk for IDing, it's the best.
