well guys, an interesting debate develops.

anyway, ive just come back from MA@eastbridgford and bought some more stems for the future scape.( see pic) a couple of red varieties. ive only tried one red variety before glandilosa i think...it died :(

but that was pre- ADA AS co2 ,fert days so hopefully i'll see if i can grow these.i think these are easier ones

sp. aromatica should have a distinct sweet smell to it, sp. stellata will not. This will be the key way to tell the difference between the two.

yeh, weekly though. my mum can dose the tpn + and flourish excell daily and i'll trim weekly. she loves riccia, so this will be my take on a riccia tank. (i can here everyone say "nooooooooooooo")

I think it's only me who hate riccia. Seriously can't stand the stuff.
How are the tanks doing anyway? how's the harvesting going?

Why dont you use easycarbo,

actually ive just ordered some from AE to try. george put me onto the use of this stuff when i first statred the henge. im sure its helped. remember i only have 1 otto in that tank now and its been like that for about 7 or 8 weeks without any algae issues, maybe the excell works wonders or ive got a stable eco system, or both.
