Re:[AGA-Member] Ben, Ricky & mosses
You thought Fantinalis antipyretica needed or preferred rather
coolish temperature, didn't you ?
I just agree with you on that point. According to the
plants catalogue in The Aquarium Plant Handbook (Oriental) , p.
27, and according to my teacher, the aquatic plants shop
temperature around 25 degrees centigrade would be optimal for
both Fantinalis antipyretica and Vesicularia sp. If it's over
28 degrees, they might wither away sooner or later. A bit
lower the better. Also, enough light and CO2 helps the plant
turn out beautiful, vivid green, and active.
Staying away from algae problem, frequent water change also
helps a lot regarding the algae growing. I myself have been
trying it, but I don't know for sure yet concerning the
effect of the sufficient CO2 and rather strong light. Give
it a try, Jay.
