Re: Aponogeton Ulvaceous (seasonal plants)
I understand that a. ulvaceous will go dormant.
I have an additional question with regard to this topic. I have a. crispus in
a 29 gallon tank. It's grown quite large and sits in the middle of the tank.
I have to decide whether to remove this plant or a very large sword nearby,
as the tank can't house 2 large centerpiece plants. Actually the crispus
looks quite nice and I'd prefer to leave that, but if I remove the sword, and
the crispus dies out, I'm left with a bare spot.
Just wondering if there are occasional flukes and what the likeliehood would
be of keeping the crispus growing and active.
