    Anyone done a carpet of Blyxa Japonica?

    George gave me a good few specimens a while back, and i've been growing and seperating them ever since. Nearly achieved a good carpet running the entire length of my tank (200 cm). :D

    Soon, very soon. I've just re-planted all of it, so looks a little thin at the moment. :?

    Would like to see that also, would look nice on a large tank, but for a small tank might be too tall for a carpet.
    Looking forward to the photos ;)

    Always thought of having a nice bush of Blyxa in my tank, but always heard bad things from mail ordered Blyxa Japonica.
    What sort of requirements does it require?
    I have a 125 ltr 27gal tank with 40watt of light. pressurized co2 @ 1 bps and daily tropica ferts.

    Definately only for the large tank. lol

    That Blyxia of George's wa 6 inches tall in my tank which is nearly 1/3rd. I can understand just how much you are getting from it though. I was pulling it out every few days. lol

    It pretty much covered my entire 80cm before I stripped it down. It's a brute!
