Nesaea pedicellata flowers - Photos

I bought some pots of Nesaea pedicellata recently but I didn't end up using them in the end, so they've been in my Rio 180 holding tank for a few months. I noticed this morning that two stems had grown above the water line and had started to flower :)

The rio is using two old 25/30w T8 tubes, heavily EI dosed and 20 - 25ml of Easy Carbo on week days. I've done one water change recently in the 2 months it's been running. I'm running an EX1200 and Fluval 204, along with a Fluval 3+ internal, all purely for circulation, though there is a full set of media in the EX1200.

Anyhow - some pics I snapped this morning before leaving for work :)

New flower buds:

Pink flowers (quite tiny!):

Both stems for a bit of scale:

Finally, full shot of the messy plant mass :lol:
