Bucephalandra under Illumagic LEDs

What a killer plant! This Bucephalandra brownie purple is showing some very nice colouration under the Illumagic COBs. I would love to see how this plant changes colours under programmable LEDs with different spectral outputs. Thank you Jaya! Awesome plant.

I have also acquired Bucephalandra champagne (lower right). The new leaves are a lot paler than the older leaves. Would love to see this one also grow out into a clump. I think it would look very beautiful under blue LEDs.

Stay tuned!

Bucephalandra Brownie Purple

Hi everyone as many of you are aware of, I am very fond of the Bucephalandra genus of plants. Apart from the Brownie Phantom I posted up earlier, I have recently acquired another 2 colours - the Brownie Purple and the Champagne; both of which look stunning!

I also currently keep the Brownie Blue, Brownie Red and Brownie metallica variants.

Thank you Jaya! Here is a picture of the brownie purple. I will take more in future when it has settled in my tank.

Making your own aquarium fertiliser

When i first started planted aquariums. I went through bottles and bottles of Seachem comprehensive and trace. It cost me a lot in time and visits to the store and postage. Then i did some research and have come up with a convenient way to make your own fertiliser at home with simple instructions.

Today I will share this with you guys in a video i made. All you need to do is dose your aquarium with several squirts from the bottle every day.
