  1. I've always admired your tank Marc. Love your macro and hurrelliana. Thanks for sharing. I am just experimenting with some LED in my tank as well and the results look promising. Although it cost an arm and a leg to get it to the optimum level of light.
  2. Fantastic pictures. Thanks for sharing. Such unique adaptations. Solutions to the same problem of staying afloat. Amazing.
  3. I ordered mine on amazon canada. Should be getting it by the end of next week.
  4. Sorry for late reply...but amazing shots John. Where did you see these?.. which state I mean? I recently went to India as well...but for family reasons.. But next time, I might try going on some of these wild life photography tours.

  6. Fantastic progress Jens. I wish you all the best and hope this new setup brings back the success of that trailer you used to have.
  7. Those are spectacular plants that you got in TC there Jens. wow!! I would love to see them become more commonly available in the future. :)
  8. Woah!! Beautiful plants. Btw..is that the new undescribed species from sumatra? (the one that looks like argentii peristome)
  9. I love your tank Marc. Its a benchmark of what I am trying to achieve with my own tanks. :)

  11. I hope you don't mind me bringing up an older topic, but I missed a lot while I was away and this is just insanely beautiful Martin. I have never ever seen cephs so beautiful. They rival those found growing on a wall in nature. Amazing. DOes it get direct sunlight for most of the day?
  12. loL! been long since I have been here...but inspite of this being a ravenous predator...it is a cute insect as long as it doesn't harm CPs.
  13. Amazing plants cedric. Man! I love that L09 alba. I would give anything for that plant. damn!!!
  14. Looking amazing Jens. I love your presentation style: Very very clean. :)
  15. Gareth, I started noticing such symptoms when temps went up to over 90F last summer. This summer I am trying to keep it under 85F and its looking better. What are your temps since the decline started?
  16. Thanks for the reply Martin. I also assume that the footprint of the light is very small...that means you cannot use one to light an area of 2' x 2'.
  17. Hey Martin, Sorry for resurfacing this old thread, but I am on the lookout for new lights and a friend directed me to this thread. Do you still have this light? Could you give some more details on the fixture, heat levels etc? thanks, varun
  18. Spectacular pictures and plants Gareth. Wow! I must pick the talangensis as my favourite. Just spectacular! It seems to be a lot more finicky than the other highland species you got there. (from my experience). DO u mind sharing your temps, humidity, media etc? I got a new one recently (after chucking my old pitchering plant away due to scale 2 y ago).

    a few pics

    Just spectacular Simon. You are a true master.
  20. Its great to see a discussion from some of the most respected and experienced CP growers around. I plead guilty to the fact that I have bought many of those seed on ebay. I must also mention that sadly, many if not all of them have minimal or no germination at all. However, its a habit that dies hard: You never know if the next batch might germinate. Its a vicious unending passion and hope. It is this collector mentality that makes us go and buy a new set of seed everytime next listings show up. The sad reality is that this enterprise of Ebay seed selling will go on until there is an actual "
  21. Spectacular pics. I wish to visit these places someday. BTW....In my humble opinion...the last pic is for sure a N. rajah. Seedlings take a long time to reach the huuge size in tthe wild. I have seen pictures of healthy seedlings that have seem to have grown for many years and showing an almost bonsai stature like that. It is dependent on various characteristics such as optimal light conditions, root bound media due to compaction, availibility of water levels etc.
  22. Spectacular plants Louis. That is the best peltata I have seen.
  23. Congratulations martin. Beautiful little girl. Clearly distracts us from looking at those plants. :) Cute smile. :) Your tank definitely looks amazing. I dropped the idea considering how expensive it became to do this setup. Maybe in the future. Thanks for the nice walkthrough though. Definitely very helpful. :)
  24. Fantastic plants and amazing neps. Can u pls tell me what is that plant with the H. neblinae parva? Looks nice.
  25. DUUUUUUDE....how the hell did u manage to catch that pic? HOLY sh**!!! What was the settings? Aperture....shutter speed etc?? WOW!!
