Geez, switched off power to refill canister and that means no wifi. Never had such interest in a fish tank clean and when power will be back on ....

Bolbitis in foreground - not even sure where to start pruning it. Thrown out most java fern.

And it’s a mess - ugh, debating on pulling it all back out to have a proper re-scaping go...

Done - filled tank, and running filters. Lots of shrimp bouncing around - unhappy at having plants moved. Bit messy but can have another go at re-scaping next water change. Photos when it clears!

Hate it when 500 litres of fish tank creaks behind your back....

Oh nah! Hey is it common for bolbitis leaves to fall off the plant? I’m finding the growth of mine is great, but tend to get bolbitis leaves drop off every week

Not usually for me. The leaves go brown / holes appear (looks like algae but isn’t) if I don’t keep the ferts up otherwise pretty good plant. Seems to like higher light than the java fern. Glut dosing ok.

Is it a low tech or high tech setup you have it in?

Parcel arrived! Always exciting in case they packed a fish tank by accident.

I think the number of the tunze refers to how many times it will get pulled apart :)
