Hi.

Being maturing my new Discus display tank in my living for a few months now and have what I assume is moss growing on the bogwood. Wondered if anyone can Id it please.
It's quite attractive but I've no idea what it is or where it's come from, though assume its sneaked in with other plants or wood.
Only moss I've knowingly added myself to the tank is java.

Ade.

Thank you Darrel. It is very attractive!

I'm about to upgrade my lights so hoping doesn't effect it as I am rather liking it and curious to see how it develops.

Thanks again,

Ade.

Thanks again, Ade.
The green algae belong to the <"same clade"> as all the higher plants and have the same photosystems and basic physiology, which means that conditions that suit the green algae also suit the rest of your plants.

Hopefully it should look like this once it has grown a bit (<from "UKAPS: Algae heritage">).

I see that The Wet Spot Tropical Fish currently has the fire red A. agassizi you are looking for. Here is the link:
I've always had good experiences buying from them on line.
Hallo,
I am Hanzle from Holland and keep apistoos for 40 years. Had my own aquarium shop from 1984 till 1988. Always s great fan from apistoos and hyphessobrycon which is s great combination in a Community Aquarium. Perhaps.....in the near future I start breeding apistoos again. Have a 400 liters Community aquarium for hyphessobrycon wadai and apistogramma biteaniata.
I want to get a 55 gallon slightly planted tank with many caves and I am thinking of getting 2 electric blue acaras, 3 blue rams, a apistogramma, 3 angelfish, and some corrydoras. Will that work if I keep the temperature at about and 80 or less?
I have kept fish for quite a long time but never cichlids. I want to find out more about them.
Hi
